    This art (cover to Atari Age #3) will likely see print within... Art of Atari


    You are bidding on an exclusive piece of original artwork and a unique piece of video gaming history. We have here the original cover painting for Atari Age Magazine Vol. 1, No. 3, featuring characters from the Swordquest games, drawn by legendary comic book artist George Perez.


    This piece is due to be featured in Tim Lapetino's forthcoming art book The Art of Atari: From Pixels to Paintbrushes. Photographs were taken by Lesly Deschler Canossi of Fiber Ink Stuios. The framing, matting, and packaging of this piece for shipment were handled by Polizzi Fine Arts in Brooklyn, NY.


    Atari is one of the most recognized names in the world. Since its formation in 1972, the company pioneered hundreds of iconic titles including Asteroids, Centipede, and Missile Command. In addition to hundreds of games created for arcades, home video systems, and computers, original artwork was specially commissioned to enhance the Atari experience, further enticing children and adults to embrace and enjoy the new era of electronic entertainment. The Art of Atari is the first official collection of such artwork. Sourced from private collections worldwide, this book spans over 40 years of the company's unique illustrations used in packaging, advertisements, catalogs, and more. Co-written by Robert V. Conte and Tim Lapetino, The Art of Atari includes behind-the-scenes details on how dozens of games featured within were conceived of, illustrated, approved (or rejected), and brought to life! Includes a special Foreword by New York Times bestseller Ernst Cline, author of Armada and Ready Player One, soon to be a motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg. Whether you're a fan, collector, enthusiast, or new to the world of Atari, this book offers the most complete collection of Atari artwork ever produced! "For me, revisiting the beautiful artwork presented in this book is almost as good as taking a trip in Doc Brown's time machine back to that halcyon era at the dawn of the digital age. But be warned, viewing these images may leave you with an overwhelming desire to revisit the ancient pixelated battlefields they each depict as well." -- from the Foreword by Ernest Cline, author of READY PLAYER ONE
