The Atari 2600 Encyclopedia Volumes 1-6 Are Now Available!

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Does anybody know if the difference between the hard cover and soft cover is just the cover difference and not the inside pages, are the inside page size the same in both versions?

Thanks

To be more clear, in my last post#51 (just posted)  when I wrote "soft cover" in my question I actually meant "paperback".  Thanks

Hey I'm the author.  Both the hard cover and soft cover versions are identical on the inside.  Thanks for checking it out!

I bought the original Vol 1 years ago and simply assumed the project was dead.  So definitely good to know it's been completed.  One question though.  The original volume 1 is black with the an aerial joystick in the corner.  The books shown in the link are just black with a green stripe and some generic print and look like mechanic handbooks.  Im guessing those are just place holders pics in leu of the actual cover art?  Just want to make sure the cover art is still the same.  I don't mind the contents looking different as long as they still look good on a shelf or coffee table.  Im not reading these from cover to cover or doing deep research on these games.  I bought Vol 1 for occasional reference but mostly as decore.

Unfortunately the original volume 1 has been abandoned due to massive printing issues.  The printer I had to use couldn't handle the complexity of the project, which killed the sales on it since the reviews were (rightfully) brutal on it.  I still don't think I've recouped my investment to this day as a result.  The project just sat on a shelf for years until I decided to just redo it from scratch like my Sega Master System Encyclopedia just to have it done.
