Speccy Compendium book

Post by psj3809 » Tue Dec 01, 2015 6:46 am

Just received my physical copy of this book in the post this morning...

http://www.bitmapbooks.co.uk/collection ... compendium

Looks amazing, love that new smell ! Got the PDF over the weekend for the book as well. Tons of great images, havent had a read yet but it brings back tons of great memories flicking through it

Think we're spoilt at the moment what with Bitmap Books and also Boyo's Fusion books. Speccy books galore, love it

Got mine this morning too! Not had chance to look at it properly yet, it's piled up with quite a lot of other things under my desk at work. :oops:

I've only just realised (ahem) that the characters are in A-Z order on the front (ahem)

The same for all three volumes so far.

Really enjoyed reading this, the interviews are very interesting.

I got mine yesterday, but I'm not going to open it, as someone can get me it for Christmas. It gets harder each year to think of things I want, so I'll give it to me Dad or Brother to give back to me :D

This is good. Much better than the 'in Pixels' book.

Not bought much Retro anything in a while, this does look like it will tickle my fancy.

The little things like the A-Z characters and the 4 colour book marks set it apart somewhat.
