New Book: When Pixels Ruled the Amiga
 
http://www.abime.net/img/whenpixelsr...amiga_book.png

I am proud to announce a new book called "When Pixels Ruled the Amiga". It's about the smallest of things: the humble pixel!

When you look at an Amiga game it's actually made up of thousands of little squares. This book is a celebration of these normally overlooked pixels.

The price will be around 49.99 / 59.99 Euros / $64.99 and it will be published this summer.

Fifty famous pixels will be displayed in all their stunning full page glory. Here are some page mock-ups:

:laughing looks great, is there any extras, music cd or dvd of the pixels for example?

I'm hoping that we can make some pixel coasters for drinks.

Superb! Many books print the pixels at a really small size so you need a magnifying glass to see them. I look forward to big pixel spreads, or even a centrefold containing some particularly magnificent pixel.

Give me some Strip poker III skin pixels and I'm in! :laughing

Too many images of pixels on the cover ruin it for me, no buy.
