The guy who invented minipops deserves to retire on it. The Excel spreadsheet version of this has wasted an awful lot of time in our office. If you are a boss, buy the paper version as a gift for your staff - it'll be more productive.
Page after page of pure, pixelized, greatness. Once I picked it up, I literaly, couldn't put it down! As soon as you get to the first page you find yourself incoherently muttering things like "Who's that?", "I know that one!" and "Hmm....I look in the glossary for that one...".
The Glossary at the back of the book explains who each of the 'Minpops' are and provided with them, hearty opinions. Minipops is a (sometimes nostalgic) journey through music, TV (and just about everything else!) through the medium of Pixel Art.
Craig Robinson has his illustration down a fine art; His illustration are quite intricate when it comes to down to fine details! I strongly advise you to buy this truly special book.
