I've been reading through The Art of Atari book, and it's very cool. Both the art and the articles are lots of fun.

Turns out there's a webpage:
http://artofatari.com/

Amazon book link:
https://www.amazon.com/Art-Atari-Tim-Lapetino/dp/1524101036


And later this month a Poster Book of larger scale versions of the art is coming out, roughly A3 / 12"x16" size.

Cool stuff! I loved the old art - what great games would old covers inspire for modern games! - and it's fascinating to read about behind the scenes and their theory. Apparently they had the first in-house art department (in the industry?) instead of contracting the art out.
