During its all-too-brief golden age, Atari produced some pretty evocative artwork for its hardware and software products. The most visually arresting art was found on their video game packaging and instruction manuals, but even the staid 400/800 documentation binder was designed with the same art style.
I have a recurring dream where we go to a computer store where the walls are lined with (never released) Atari software. All of them with that art style - on both the black box and silver box styles.
Oh man. Great dream. But painful.
