Volume One has hundreds of images from Pong to the 1200XL Home Computer. Some images painstakingly restored from originals over 30-40 years old.
Not just another stale history of Atari, We Love Atari is meant to be an exciting visual experience, but we also added some fun facts and quotes as well as enough historical content to understand Atari as a company.
We've listed all commercial Arcade releases along with the official flyers as produced by Atari for their clients back in the day. Atari was built on the foundations of their Arcade success and funded the growth of the company into the late 1970's.
Continues with the sale of Atari in 1984 to Jack Tramiel and his desire to rule the computing world.
Not only will Vol. 2 cover all of Atari Corps' products from 1984, we will again sprinkle some of the companies global advertising, flyers, prototypes, and a dash of historical perspective to give you as much of Atari as we possibly can.
Such as the re-launched 8-Bit line renamed the XE, the introduction of the ground breaking 16-Bit ST computer range, the advanced computers such as the MEGA STE, TT030, Falcon030 and the Transputer Workstation, video game consoles from the 2600Jnr., 7800, Lynx I/II, all the way to the 64-Bit Jaguar and of course Atari PC's, pocket computers, calculators and much more.
Mythical tales of enhanced ST's, Junior ST's, Portable ST's and even ST games consoles, there is even an Amiga in here somewhere! We look at unreleased computers (Falcon 040 & Microbox) and video game consoles (Panther, Mirai) and get a complete picture of the Atari products that could have been.
Rare photos, product shots and paperwork, we leave no area of Atari uncovered. Global advertising, flyers, the amazing underground Atari scene, as well as interesting historical facts and figures for you to digest and examine as we go on the second and last volume of our Atari journey.
Thank you to all our customers to date.
