Retro PC and game Hardcover Books

I just ordered the: Commodore Amiga: a visual Commpendium and: The CRPG Book: A Guide to Computer Role-Playing Games.

From Bitmap books and am waiting on the shipment, and was wondering if anyone was interested in the books they sell here:




RPG Compendium:


I can't wait to get them, they are coming fro the UK and I live in the US. They are a bit expensive but I doubt there may be anything else in a quality Hardcover Edition like them.

I have those books and also the very nice book the Art of Point and Click Adventure games. Maybe someday I'll also go for the snes compendium.

Nice they have PDF version alongside the hardback... I find PDF useful to read on phone.

Great quality stuff! Well worth the money.

You can find a lot of resellers on Amazon and may have found one cheaper from USA.

UK postage was free which was handy as it was quite a weighty book!

Yeah I love the books from Bitmap Books, such great quality.

I have the C64, Amiga and SNES visual compendiums. Looks like I'll have to start saving my pennies for the 'Art of Point-and-Click Adventure games' - looks like another top quality read.
