INSERT COIN: A VISUAL GUIDE TO THE GOLDEN AGE OF ARCADE VIDEOGAMES - VOL. 1

Robert David Swan



 

Welcome to the first in a series of illustrated anthologies, each featuring fifty of the greatest coin-op titles to emerge during that nascent industry's most creative and innovative era, as seen across the UK from the late 1970s through to the mid-Eighties.


Originating either as imports from the USA and Japan, or released directly through British distributors, these visionary creations and their constituent parts - cabinets, controls, marquees and bezels - have been meticulously reconstructed as high-resolution digital artwork, and supplemented with a variety of machine-specific information, promotional material, and in-game screenshots.

As such, this and future compilations aim not only to celebrate those classic works of electronic entertainment that continue to inspire designers, artists and engineers through to the present day, but also endeavor to preserve their likeness for collectors, restorers and enthusiasts for generations to come.
