about

''A love letter to gaming in all its forms - from board games, to role-play, to virtual reality and video games. For fans of gaming, this is the perfect read. For those new to gaming, it is the perfect introduction'' The Scotsman

A thrilling illustrated journey through the history of video games and what they really mean to us

Pac-Man. Mario. Minecraft. Doom.

Ever since he first booted up his brother''s dusty old Atari, comic artist Edward Ross has been hooked on video games. Years later, he began to wonder: what makes games so special? Why do we play? And how do games shape the world we live in?

This lovingly illustrated book takes us through the history of video games, from the pioneering prototypes of the 1950s to the modern era of blockbuster hits and ingenious indie gems. Exploring the people and politics behind one of the world''s most exciting art-forms, Gamish is a love letter to something that has always been more than just a game.
Edward Ross is an Edinburgh-based comic-book artist, writer and illustrator. He is the author of the widely acclaimed Filmish: A Graphic Journey through Film and has also worked on a series of science-themed comics.
