Does this book include the Atari Corp artwork or just the late 70's early 80's?
 

Not entirely sure.

Seems to be broken down by author.
But the home console section does include descriptions of atari xe, lynx, and jaguar.

I've got that one and the Poster version. They are great (well, my Poster version is still sealed)

I think there's a third version?

Me too. My poster version is open, but I have yet to put any of them up... I need to remedy that. I need to see if there are easy to get frames that fit these (I bought some posters from Eurpoe that were A4...getting those frames over here was not easy or inexpensive).

Many answers can be found here:

 

Or you could ask Tim yourself. ;)

Nice, I think that's one I would have bought at MGC 2019, but when I got to his booth they were sold out.

Art of Atari is a quality book, I have a copy as well. The binding and the heft are all fantastic.

This is the single best book about Atari currently available. Plenty of other good options, but Art of Atari is the best.

Couldn't agree more.  I have the deluxe edition (w/slip cover) and absolutely love this book.  Nothing else like it and thanks to Tim Lapetino, we have the ability to own and look at some glorious Atari artwork.  My son was into Loot Crate for a while and got me the Capsule Edition.

I didn't know about any deluxe edition until this thread. Doesn't matter, the standard edition is still really sweet and of great quality. I'd love to have that Poster Book now!

Since we're all chiming in, I have the deluxe slip cover edition signed, and the poster book.  Both are fantastic.

Ya, I have the Deluxe Edition, it's fantastic.  I love that style of box art from the early Atari days.  I even bought those empty prop game boxes from Panic, Inc., just because they look like period-correct long-lost 2600 games.  I wish game boxes today had that style.

I'm an artist myself - I draw comics and made my first picture book recently.

 

I also appreciate the artwork on another level; it is gorgeous from a technical perspective.  It is sad too nowadays that so many professional illustrators use computers and graphics programs to create art.  I miss the days where illustrators actually painted with oils, acrylic, watercolors, etc.
