Commodore 64 Commpendium

Coffee table book for the games enthusiast

This collection of books takes a nostalgic look at the history of much loved games consoles and the games that pushed the boundaries of the technology of their time.  Commodore 64: a visual commpendium is a limp bound 234 page brochure with flaps and matching dust coveR. A perfectly wonderful example of book printing.

An inital run of 2500 just could not meet the demand and a further run of 2500 requested. Funded by Kickstart and looking for a higher grade of finish for the next book we produced 2000 of the limp bound version and a further 5000  printed in a higher end finish to please the adoring fan and investors.

A real handful of a book, it was speced inhouse by the Apple Team, at the Bristol Printers,  to create a beautifully case bound coffee table book with ribbon page markers and bronze end papers with bespoke head and tail bands and a hardback sleeve. A laminate adds protection to the cover while the spot UV add that extra visual dimension.  We excitedly await the next instalment at this Bristol Printers.
