Now with current prices, this book shows the big, flashy machines that have entertained and delighted us in taverns, arcades, and at home for half a century. Devoted fans are all around the world, and nearly everyone has a special memory of their favorite machine and a story to tell of the greatest game they ever played. Naturally, these machines have become highly prized collectibles. Renowned for the conspicuous design of their playing surfaces and scoreboards, these "games of skill" have captivated collectors with their eye-catching art. Pop Art, Cubism, Comic art, and Photo Realism are among the styles found on the glass canvas of the machines and in these pages. This is a collector's book as well as a pinball gallery of art. Moreover, it's a chronology, from the simple early mechanical pinball machines up to their modern, fully electronic equivalents. It provides an alphabetical overview of all the variety, the artistry, and the manufacturing ingenuity that have gone into pinball machines over the years.Reseña del editor:
