I recently received these Japanese arcade game books, all published in 1996.
Arcade Game Classics Vol. 1: 1978 ~ 1987
A very nice book, giving details, pictures etc of arcade games released during this era. All pages are in full colour.
Arcade Game Classics Vol. 2: 1988 ~ 1993
Follows the same format as the book above.
Doing / Making Game Centre At Home
This book is packed with info on arcade cabinets, superguns, PCB hardware, game centres and places to buy arcade related items. Very cool!
