Insert Coin: The Early History of Video Games

I created this book out of appreciation and curiosity for vintage technology. It is a practice in layout design wherein I drew inspiration from ephemera of each game's respective time period. Some of this inspiration was drawn from advertisements, like those for the Magnavox Odyssey and Pong, and some reflect the appearance demonstration exhibitions, like Computer Tennis.

My favorite part of this project, aside from learning about this longstanding history, was the process of finding these vintage advertisements and photos. The handling of the typography, the illustrations, and the copywriting inspired the contents of this book as well as the rest of my work.
