[Book] The Encyclopedia of Atari ST Demos

Post by Zorro 2 »

Hi!

Sébastien Larnac aka ST Survivor has concocted a book called Democyclopédie which talks about demos and their effects through the years of the machine of our childhood.

It's available only in french but a new english version is in pipe :)

If you are interested, you can order it on https://cotegamers.com/shop/fr/encyclop ... ri-st.html.

I might be interested in the English version.

Demo's have always fascinated me. The work involved, the ideas and
concepts, the "tricks" and "hacks", to achieve amazing results, it's all
very interesting, IMHO.

I can grab a good ST or Falcon demo, crank up the sound, sit back in
my chair, and just zen out... :)

Sounds a great book and would read an English version too. I sent a separate private message about an approach to translating.

Hi there! Thank you for promoting my book about ATARI ST demos. As written above it is currently available in French but work is in progress as far as the English book is concerned. Do not expect high quality litterature but I think I should be able to provide you with a more than decent quality. We will let you know if/when help is needed. In the meantime feel free to spread the word about the book. Thanks a lot!

I received mine today.

Great book ! A lot of content with myriads of images.

I wished more technical details but this is really great as an art book about ST demos.

Worth the price, definitively.
