Launched in 1985, the Amiga ushered in a new age of home computing. With its powerful 16-bit Motorola CPU and custom graphics and audio chipsets, it was an instant hit among gamers looking to move on from the eight-bit systems, as well as artists and musicians moving into the digital realm.
The Commodore Amiga was a huge influence for me when in my final year of Graphic Design studies in Auckland (1990). Deluxe Paint II, with it’s intuitive interface and animation capabilities opened up a world of creative endevour which continues to this day.
Commodore Amiga: a Visual Commpendium, published by Bitmap Books in the UK, is a gorgeous walk down memory lane.
