As additional content, many images are presented with background information, comments by the editor and in-depht stories from the artists themselves. The pixel graphics that emerged in the late 80's and the 90's beginning has inspired and created a sub-cultural era of pixelled art. This is an attempt to capture the style and soul from that period of pioneering and creativity.

  • featured images

    We aim to capture the style and masterpieces of the most famous pixel artists, mainly from the demoscene. Volume 1 features 5-bit colour up to 8-bit colour images. The pictures presented are mostly created with software running on an Amiga system (OCS & AGA), but also with software for the PC/Mac system and some images created on the Atari system.
    Volume 2 (in planning stage) will feature 4-bit colour images or below, as used by Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum.

  • what makes this book unique?

    The design of the book is laid out to give space and possibility to share inspiring, interesting and amusing background stories and information about the pixel artwork that came to define the early era of pixel design.
    With text both by the book author and the individual artists themselves, we hope to introduce more background information on compo-winners as well as lesser known pieces.
    All texts in the book are in English.
