In its present form, the pinball machine has existed for some fifty years as an attractive ball-game device. In taverns, arcades, and at home, too, it brings pleasure to a great number of fans. As a technical device, it has an extensive history. Through the eye-catching designs on its backglass, it invites one to "a game of skill," either alone or in competition (it's more fun to compete). For the first time, the most striking pinball backglasses are presented in one volume. Various artistic styles such as pop art, cubism, comic, and realism are here. This makes the book not only a collector's guide, but also a "pinball gallery" of exciting pop art. In addition, it offers a chronology from the pinball's ancestors to the fully solid state devices of the present day. A guide to collecting and restoring backglasses, an alphabetical listing of all manufactured pinball games and their manufacturers, and ac complete price guide make this collector's book complete.
