Task: Purchase the Atari Projects Book
Needed: Web browser
Time: 5-10 mins
I have really enjoyed completing and posting the projects on this web page. Earlier in the summer I decided to curate 50 of the approximately 80 posts and create a book focused on the Atari 8-bit computers. It took me about three months to pick the projects, order them, edit them, and self-publish a book using Lulu. It was a lot of work but I am very happy with the final product.
I specifically picked and ordered the projects to allow someone new to the hobby to purchase the hardware they need, learn about Atari software, learn some programming, and find the resources they need to dive in deeper. I hope everyone finds the book useful and fun. I don’t think there is anything quite like it in the Atari portfolio.
The Atari Projects book is available from Lulu for $19.80. This is about $2.00 over the print cost. I purposefully kept the cost low to make the book accessible to as many Atari enthusiasts as possible.
The book includes a number of color photographs of hardware and screenshots of software. It is printed on high-quality paper and has about 122 pages. As always, all of the projects can be found for free on this website.
