I collect Books about Retro Gaming :)

i supported all the Kickstarter Campaigns from "Bitmap Books" - the books are all awesome and a great quality - last one was the "SNES / FAMICOM" Book.

Here are my suggestions:

My favorite Books i owned: Ocean Book, U.S. Gold Book, Amiga and C64 in Pixels Book

I sopported the last campaign on kickstarter with the "Dreamcast Book", can´t wait the Sega Book was brilliant

The Artcade Book - very good for all GFX Lovers from Arcade Cabinets

There are so many more, which i can suggest, hope others have recommendations :)

If you want to include the works of fiction, Ready Player One is an excellent book that could probably fit into the gaming category.
