Commodore 64: a visual commpendium is a book that celebrates the beauty of the greatest home computer ever made.

The campaign has now launched on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2146199819/commodore-64-a-visual-commpendium-by-bitmap-books

Created by lifelong Commodore 64 fan and Graphic Designer Sam Dyer, the final book will feature 200+ pages of lovingly designed and beautifully printed artwork. Unlike other Commodore 64 books, it will celebrate the visual side of the computer in a way that has never been seen before.

It will be packed full of artwork by Oliver Frey, game art, reviews, loading screens, game maps and photography. The foreword will be written by legendary Sensible Software Graphic Artist Stoo Cambridge.

As a special reward there are still signed copies of Micro Hexagon by Paul Koller available, beautifully packaged with stickers, poster and booklet. Only 100 PAL cartridges of Micro Hexagon will ever be made.

Please support this unique Kickstarter campaign!
