Preserving demoscene art is a common movement these days. DVDs are released with old demos in video format. CDs are compiled of old module musics. How come never anyone collected pixel art in printed format? We did, so the best screen paintings can be preserved for the future.


Freax Art Album, the lovely companion to the Big Demoscene History Book is now available at our resellers. It is a nice 286 page collection of demoscene graphics, in full color - that makes about 1600 pieces of demoscene art! The Album contains:

- Commodore 64 graphics
- Amiga OCS and AGA graphics
- ZX Spectrum graphics
- Atari ST and Falcon graphics
- Amstrad CPC graphics
- PC ANSI and ASCII graphics
- PC 8-bit oldschool graphics
- PC 24-bit newschool graphics
- Raytraced pictures
- Handdrawn Commodore 64 disk covers
- The infamous 'Cracker Comics' from the '80s by Hobbit of Fairlight.

The Freax Art Album is not the long awaited Volume 2. yet. It is still being composed, and will be released in 2007.

Perceptive people can notice that despite the above list is long, still not all scene artists are covered. After Volume 2. we might release a second Art Album to make it up. But that's not a real plan yet.


Yes, the biggest book ever written about the history of the computer demoscene is completed and available from our resellers right now! The 224 page book contains the complete history of the Commodore 64 and the Amiga, both the machines and the underground subcultures around them, from the cracker-warez scene to the demoscene, from hacking and phreaking to the ASCII art scene. Illustrated with 483 color photos and screenshots, this is the comprehensive guide to the once glorious world of these old computers, probably bringing up a couple of memories from your teen or childhood years. Interviews with scene celebrities, former key persons of the computer industry, citations from contemporary magazines and fanzines make the the narrative history of the big adventure complete. What was behind the scenes is now revealed.
