Pinball Compendium: The Electro-Mechanical Era (Hardcover)
This comprehensive new book showcases the most desirable electro-magnetic pinball games ever built. Over 1,000 color photos, arranged in decades from the 1930s to the 1990s, display some of the most popular pinballs ever built. Also, rare photos show Gordon Hasse with some of the most sought-after and popular Gottlieb and Parker games. This book breaks new ground in documenting this classic era. It greatly augments the author's three earlier works on pinball history and rounds out the most up-to-date research in the field.
Michael Shalhoub has collected over 400 rare pinball machines. He has put his passion to use as the proprietor of Pinball Master Sales and Service, in Sydney, Australia, where he is helping to open the first pinball museum.
