$39.95.  Looks like something that a lot of us here would love.

I'm glad they chose to use Missile Command as the most prominent artwork on the cover. I just shot that in high resolution for a new slide on the home page. It's iconic of Atari's artwork from that era  :emoji-E420:

This is terrific!

The box art was a portal to the imagination, as much a part of the gameplay experience as any elements.

 

Looking forward to it.

Is that puddle on the floor from me drooling or from my wallet crying?  Maybe both.

What is the difference going to be, other than the cover, between the regular book in the Deluxe Edition?

Probably nothing but the cover.
