arcade design


art of the arcade

Late 70’s/early 80’s graphic design is super nostalgic to me, for pretty obvious reasons I guess. It seems maybe strange, but I feel like the 70’s were a big part of my childhood (even though I wasn’t born until the early 80’s). There were certainly many 70’s era products around my house growing up, 70’s-edition books on the bookshelves, 70’s TV on reruns. This gallery showcases design of late 70’s, early 80’s arcade machines and fonts, and some of them are quite nice. I’ve found myself enjoying graphic design more these days, probably a result of exposure to web galleries like this one.

A MAN AGAINST INSANITY by Paul de Kruif.
The story of a doctor who conquered his own insanity and now shows others the way back, by the author of Microbe Hunters.
"An old master Paul de Kruif surely is. His latest book has pace, it has style, it has a sharply drawn hero, and, most important, it tells one of the great stories of our times." -Washington Post and Times Herald.

I found that in the back of a copy of Nova Express by William S. Burroughs.

My name is Alex and I live in LA the Bay Area.
