The incredible aesthetic and design choices of retro arcade games is undeniable. Chunky, chiptune soundtracks and pixelated blocky letters are indelibly linked to the video games of the ’70s, ’80s, and beyond. For all you nostalgic nerds, there’s a handsome coffee table book to celebrate the world of pixel typeface. Arcade Game Typography has been available since 2019 but is now being released in an exclusive limited-edition hardcover copy. Released by Read-Only Memory, Arcade Game Typography features 250-pixel typefaces with accompanying commentary and illustrations along with 4 illustrated essays on video game typography theory and practice. Within its pages you’ll find examples from Super Sprint, Pac-Man, After Burner, Marble Madness, Shinobi, and more. The hardback edition has been limited to 2,000 copies and is available for purchase now.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
