The ZX Spectrum Book

The book, 'The Story of the ZX Spectrum in Pixels', will be 200+ pages in length and be predominantly a visual journey charting the best games on the ZX Spectrum from1982 onwards until the early 90’s.


Each spread will contain a large iconic image of the game and be accompanied by artwork from the inlay, the game's advertisement where available and further game screens showing the loading screen, menu etc.


The book will also be talking to and interviewing 15+ programmers, artists and musicians to get their view on the Spectrum and how it helped launch their careers into gaming.


The original editor of Retro Gamer magazine, Martyn Carroll, will be documenting the history of the Sinclair Spectrum and its accompanying peripherals all the way from the 16K Sinclair machine through to Amstrad’s 128K incarnation.
