Having achieved Kickstarter funding earlier this year, this eagerly anticipated book really hits the spot for C64 fans. The majority of the book contains screenshots of games, accompanied by mini-reviews or quotes from developers and journalists of the time, arranged in chronological order to give a real sense of how the machine developed over its lifetime.
The book doesn’t just celebrate the in-game art though, as it also contains a healthy selection of loading screens, hardware photography and even Oliver Frey’s iconic Zzap!64 covers, meaning there’s something for everybody. It’s a comprehensive celebration of C64 culture, from 1982 to the present day and is bound to excite anyone who ever owned Commmodore’s 8-bit home computer.
Commodore 64: A visual Compendium is available now from Funstock priced £24.99.
