New Book: When Pixels Ruled the Amiga



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:

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.

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