WTB: The Bitmap Brothers: Universe Book

Bit of a long shot I'm sure but... I'm looking for a copy of The Bitmap Brothers: Universe done by Read Only Memory. Hoping to cover a few of the Bros games for the AMIGArama podcast and really want it for reference!


Sadly they aren't planning on releasing it as a PDF and is out of print, eBay has been no help so I'm asking for help

Some libraries hold this. If you have any friends or family that can obtain it then according to a search online the following seem to show they have the book:

British Library
Wetherby, W Yorkshire, LS23 7BQ United Kingdom

University of Oxford
Oxford, OX1 2JD United Kingdom

University of Bristol Library
Bristol, BS1 5DS United Kingdom

National Library of Scotland
Edinburgh, Scotland, EH1 1EW United Kingdom

If you have a scanner then it might be a good idea not to let this book disappear off the face of the earth... y'know?

It's out of print, after all.

Thanks but that's very annoying, contacted them recently and signed up for a notification. Could have told people as I just forked out over £60 for it

There's a thread on here that social media is killing message boards. I don't agree, I think it can be useful.

Thanks for bringing this book to my attention. I grew up with their games.

Thanks

It's a pretty good book for content to be fair, I've bought it for research purposes on my weekly Amiga podcast. It's over on AMIGArama if its of interest
