And here is Bart's first C64 cartoon. Title is 'BREAD BIN' ;-).

And in the meantime photographer Jan feels the C64 love all around!

... More to follow!

With this project I hope to bring you in my world of growing up with THE Commodore 64. My book will take you back in time and hopefully give you the feel of how an 80s youngster’s life revolved around this machine. Just imagine your teenage bedroom full of friends and this shiny Commodore, like a king, standing proud in the middle.

Around this machine, battles were fought, friendships were strengthened, plenty of emotions were shared and exciting times always laid ahead.

This home computer was an as important part of my life as were my family and friends. When I first saw one, I knew this was it! Not knowing then though that the world of swapping discs and games was going to become such big business in my environment. Your status was measured by how many discs and the amount of popular games you possessed. The kid with the new and highly desired games was ruler of our world.

Many bubble-gum, A-team gaming cards and even BMX bikes traded hands for these new, not so new and even cracked games. Nothing mattered more than being Knight Rider, the A-team and even ET for a moment.

Holidays were all about gaming, endless hours of battling it out around the Commodore 64.

To my friends and myself, a gaming holiday was worth as much as a Caribbean get-a-away to our parents!

8-BIT KIDS - Growing Up With The Commodore 64 is the first of hopefully many books by publisher Amicom Books. The main focus of Amicom is top level books all about the 1980’s

THE CREW, on this flight back to the 80’s, looking after all your needs:

Photography – Jan Darthet

Jan has been a professional in the business for the last 20 years. He is well known for covering Art matters but also contemporary coverage on modern day facts. Make sure to check out his website http://www.fotograafjan.be. Jan has made over 100 shots depicting my private Commodore 64 collection but also various related collections. No need to say he has also shot the masterpiece on the cover of this book.

Lay-out – Marian Denolf 

Marian is a stylist on and off paper for as long as I’ve known her. Everything and anything using colour and lay-out is her daily occupation. I am not going to disclose her age but she’s also an 80’s child which makes her ideal for the best lay-out . She will blow you away with sparkling colours and refreshing lay-outs

Translations – Vicky De Bruyne

Vicky is an 8-BIT KID too ;-). Born in Belgium, but spent the most of her living days in central London, having to switch between her native Dutch and her, well, other native English quite a lot. She makes sure my original manuscript is written in perfect accurate English. So the book will not only look good, but actually read splendid as well. Oh Yeah, did I mention Vicky just loooooves The Cure?

 Cartoons - Bart Vantieghem

As a professional cartoonist, Bart is one of the funniest guys around. He published several books and works for national magazines. Bart will be drawing four new Commodore 64 related cartoons exclusively for '8-BIT KIDS'.

Writing – Koen De Brabander

That’s me; well what can I say? Born in the 70s, raised in the 80s and still a huge admirer of the C64. I’ve already published six books, always with recent (and/or local) history as main theme.

Some of my books were published by the UK/USA publisher TEMPUS/The History Press. It is this past experience that made me write the one book I always dreamt of : the story of growing up in the 1980s with the Commodore 64.

I hope you enjoy my book as much as I have enjoyed writing it!

The book will be offset printed on high quality 135g MC shiny paper by a local top notch Printing Company. It is a hardback cover - 128 pages, full colour.

It'll contain over 100 perfect shots made exclusively for this publication by our photographer Jan Darthet. All is set to make this a first quality book printed to the highest possible standard.

To me it is obvious that a fine layout and good capturing writing will make this book a must for any booklover and even a collector’s item.

This book makes a perfect gift (even to yourself) for every Commodore and 1980s fan!

The money needed to bring this book to life, is the money asked for in this funding project. No less, no more. So the €8215 covers:

  • Printing of the book
  • Translation of the manuscript to English
  • Worldwide shipping-costs + packaging (thick foam envelope) per book included
  • Lay-out costs

So, you won't pay for me writing the book, nor will I gain any money on this project. My goal is simply to be able to publish this book and bring it to you.

If we reach more than the set goal, extras will be added to the book for you. Depending on the amount, it can go from adding a ribbon marker or a CD with exclusive (new) SID-music to a poster with exclusive photo's or even a lithograph... All the money that goes in to this project will come back to you as a direct return.

So, if we reach... (Stretch goals)

  • REACHED €8215 : Funded! + free pdf with €25 pledge + C64-cartoon card signed and numbered by cartoonist Bart Vantieghem with €30 & €55 pledges + Mr. Ben Daglish will write an introduction for the book reflecting on his C64 8-BIT years.

Risks and challenges

We have prepared this project very thoroughly. Writing is ready, lay-out is stand-by, pictures are made, translation is set...
All we need to do is finish lay-out, order this book by the printer and send it out to you!

Standard we send it to you via German Economy Book post, in a thick foam envelope. This should be safe and OK. Hey, we want our work of art to reach you in a perfect way! If, however, you want to your book(s) to be sent registered and in a cardboard box, you can add €12 to the amount your are rewarding.

If anything slows down the process of this project, we will communicate this immediately. But we don't suspect this will happen... We've looked at this from a lot of angles :-).
