SIERRA COLLECTOR’S QUEST AD ARCHIVE 1

Stephen Emond



 

Covering almost 50 years of gaming history, Sierra Collector’s Quest is the definitive guide to one of the industry’s most influential publishers. At its peak, Sierra consistently topped sales charts and won over legions of devoted fans. This visual compendium was developed as a companion to the main guides – a veritable optical feast of Sierra’s signature advertising endeavors throughout the ages.


Mixed Advertisements

This special volume features 470 pages of painstakingly restored marketing materials from across the Sierra Multiverse. While the bulk were originally featured as Magazine Ads, this compilation also includes a variety of Promo Pamphlets, Direct Mailers, and Product Catalogs.


The Ultimate Collector’s Guide

Unlike the detail intensive entries found in the main Collector’s Quest series, this book was created solely as a whimsically artistic tribute. Each advertisement within is presented in a consistent and visually stunning 7”×9” format. Key identifying traits are included for reference without detracting from the core aesthetic.
