Figured I'd share this here.  This is a project by Marc Oberhäuser that I believe deserves attention. Here is the link to the campaign:  https://www.kickstar...ri-1977-to-1995

This is a wonderful looking project only being hampered by its presentation as regards to its book cover which is undeserving considering the content within , I'm sure it's going to do well or hope it does, simple marketing corrections should see this through and a front cover redesign..also I've a little concern over the pricing of the book too? Very expensive for a gallery book with stats.

Seems kind of odd to omit the Jaguar.  Just that one console missing.

Yeah, it's really strange that he isn't including the Jaguar given the date range. One more year and he would capture all of Atari, Corp. Most consider the classic era '72-'84. Personally, I think the Atari, Corp. years are fascinating. The Jr., XE line, 7800, ST/TT, Falcon, Lynx and Jaguar. I am still hopeful for Business is War.

Regarding the conspicuous absence of the Atari's 64-bit swan song, on FB the author indicated that he had to draw the line somewhere, the book was 700+ pages and he had little knowledge of the Jaguar. I can accept this.

Maybe there is an opportunity for someone to write a Jaguar only book...

Yeah, but you're soooooooo close ;)

 

Perhaps if you separated it into two volumes with the Warner sale dividing the content. So volume one could cover the 2600, 5200, and the 8-bit and volume two could cover the 7800, Lynx, later computers & Jaguar
