I hope a volume two is issued to help make up for the omissions because Atari had the best box art in the business and it deserves as much spotlight that can shine upon it.
Folks if your like me and loved these games as a kid buy this poster book. I'm buying another for preservation.
Before I go... one slight negative... who decided to put the artwork of Yars Revenge on the flip side of Warlords???!!! Argh!!!
First of all, it's a weird size (12x16). Why not make it 11x 14? A bit smaller, sure, but 11x14 frames are abundant and inexpensive. It would have made taking out a half dozen of these and putting them on the walls of your retro-gaming room a heck of a lot easier. And some of them seem oddly cropped or have too much negative space around the image.
Secondly, it relies way to heavily on images from sports games. I mean, I loved those covers as a kid-and I have great appreciation for the artists who created them, but they seem more dated than the fantasy art adorning other Atari covers.
And, this may seem weird, but I was actually hoping some pages would be reprints of the entire cover of the box (with the title and game variations and all that).
Still, its printed on quality paper and the images are crisp and well-printed.
