Why We LOVE 'A Gremlin In The Works'!



"The team behind the creation of this book have some serious credentials and Bitmap Books have come in ensure the finished article is everything it could be. Gremlin hold a special place in my heart as they started out in my hometown of Sheffield and it's a pleasure to be bringing such a stunning piece of work to you all. There's that much content packed into it that it's been spread across 2 books and encapsulated in a gorgeous slip case. Mark Hardisty has managed to pull this together in an un-paralleled way, with exclusive access to all of the key members involved and it also has the seal of approval from Founder, Ian Stewart on there too! It is a combination of amazing artwork and engrossing story telling, with an insane level of detail" - Andy Pearson, Funstock
 

About the Book



With the British computer game scene about to explode, a small shop appeared on Sheffield’s Carver Street called Just Micro. It was founded by the partnership of Ian Stewart and Kevin Norburn, both with retail backgrounds but a desire to get into the business of games publishing. Fortunately the shop attracted local talent such as Pete Harrap, Shaun Hollingworth and Tony Crowther, and so, in 1984, Gremlin Graphics was formed. 

This lavish 572 page book plots the course of the company, from initial successes with Monty Mole, Jack The Nipper and Thing On A Spring, to its ground-breaking Lotus-branded racing games, and eventual purchase by Infogrames in 1999.

Officially endorsed by founder Ian Stewart, A Gremlin In The Works by Mark Hardisty features interviews and anecdotes from all of its key members, including Chris Kerry, Ben Daglish and Greg Holmes, along with stalwarts of the UK gaming scene: Rod Cousens, Tim Chaney, Jeremy Heath-Smith, Geoff Brown and Infogrames founder Bruno Bonnell among many others.

Filled with game imagery, memorabilia and archive material such as old letters, business cards, staff photos and game design documents, this is an exhaustive and comprehensive chronicle of one of Britain’s best-loved developers, and a fascinating exploration of the meteoric rise of the gaming scene in the ’80s and ’90s. The finished book is 572 pages long which is spilt into two volumes. Both volumes are housed within a heavy board full-colour slipcase. Each volume will lovingly printed to the highest standards using CMYK and Pantone inks.
