Since its formation back in 1972, Atari has become synonymous wth the video game world. With titles such as Asteroids, Centipede, and Missile Command, Atari provided interactive entertainment for many years and continues to do so today. In addition to the couples titles, home video systems, and computers the company created, artwork was also commissioned to enhance the user experience.

Now, The Art of Atari is the first official collection of this artwork. The book, due out by the end of October this year, features privately-sourced collections of artwork that span over 40 yeas of the company’s timeless illustrations used in their packaging, advertisements, catalogs and more. It includes behind-the-scenes details of the game conception, taking the reader along the sordid process of development that eventually led to product release. It’s perfect for the fan, collector, and enthusiast of the Atari world, even offering a comprehensive history to those unfamiliar with the company’s history. Hardcover prices are set to start at $25.
