We Love Atari (Vol.1)

Volume One - 1972 - 1983

Not just another Atari picture book!

By Karl Morris, co-founder of the Atari Historical Society and true Atari nut!
Designed to compliment your knowledge and love of Atari.
Made for anybody interested in one of the most exciting electronics companies of the 20th Century.  

A very limited print run designed and published by the author.

Over 650 images*

Volume One has hundreds of images from Pong to the 1200XL Home Computer, representing years of collecting. Some images painstakingly restored from originals over 30-40 years old  *Conservative estimate!

Facts, Figures and Fun!

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Love Atari is meant to be an exciting visual experience, but we also added some fun facts and quotes as well as enough historical content to understand Atari as a company.

Arcade Flyers

All commercial Arcade releases & official flyers produced by Atari are included.  Atari was built on the foundations of their Arcade success and this in turn funded the growth of the company well into the late 1970's.

What is in Volume Two?

1

All commercially released products

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 STETT030, Falcon030 and the Transputer Workstation, video game consoles from the 2600Jnr., 7800Lynx I/II, all the way to the 64-Bit Jaguar and of course Atari PC's, pocket computers, calculators and much more.

2

Prototypes, mythical projects and the rare ones

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.

3

Not just pretty pictures, there's much more

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.
