As many of you already have probably gathered from a quick look around the site, since it’s release I have had a rather (obsessively so sometimes!) fondness for Sir Clive’s first colour capable computer the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. I was overjoyed to hear that Chris Wilkins, the man behind two recently successful Kickstarter campaigns for retrogaming related books (Ocean The History and US Gold a very American, British software house) was planning a book about the much loved British classic micro.
The Story of the ZX Spectrum in Pixels campaign runs for another 28 days (at the time of writing) and has already been halfway funded. There are some fantastic perks available too, including;
- A2 and A3 Crash magazine cover prints by Oliver Frey
- Signed copies of Crash by Roger Kean and Oliver Frey
- Signed gaming postcards by those who worked on the game e.g. Wizball signed by Mark Jones and Dizzy signed by Philip & Andrew Oliver
