Why We LOVE 'Push Start: The Art of Video Games Book'!

I actually did a 'double take' when I first saw this.The cover is absolutely amazing with a 3D embossed Space Invader! The book itself covers the art of video games and features some of the most icon imagery in video gaming history. It's huge (28cm x 28cm) and packed with over 400 super high resolution images. It spans all eras, right from Pong, all the way up to 'The Last of Us' and other next gen blockbusters. I consistently keep coming back to it and flicking through it,there's so much content and so many great images!" - Andy Pearson, General Manager, Funstock.co.uk

Everything You Need To Know!

Pac Man, Space Invaders, Tetris, and Super Mario Bros. are video game veterans and more than just reminiscences of an untroubled childhood. Challenging stories and characters, visual quality, and aesthetic experience make them successful examples of popular interaction design. They have become more than a mere video game and can be regarded as a multimedia art form. 
Push Start outlines the graphical evolution from its beginnings, through the golden age of arcade video games, to the latest generation of game consoles. Fascinating artwork and screenshot prints of the most famous video games and the corresponding cult sounds on a ten-inch vinyl create an expanding universe of game culture in which the worlds of emotion, reality, and art collide.
Video Games are the new art form of the present day. Abstract pixels, colourfully psychedelic or stupefyingly realistic – technology, interaction and design combine to create a new, distinct aesthetic. This comprehensive compendium traces the graphic evolution from early games through the golden era of arcade gaming all the way to current HD masterpieces.
