Specialist publisher Read-Only Memory, the team behind A+ books like the Sega Genesis Collected Works, are trying something different. Instead of releasing another coffee table book about video games, they’re releasing a coffee table book about video games that also has cardboard pop-ups of old Sega arcade cabinets.

The book is called SEGA Arcade: Pop-Up History, and it’s currently taking orders on Kickstarter. The Guardian’s Keith Stuart has written it, with features on Hang-On, Space Harrier, Thunder Blade, After Burner, and Out Run.

Each game features a write-up on its importance and history, but is also accompanied by schematics, illustrations and the aforementioned cardboard pop-up model.

Prices start at around USD$35, depending how early you pledge. I’ve got a few of their books and they are excellent, so hopefully this one continues the trend.

@Kotaku Staff - I’ve been forced to run an adblocker on your site for the past few months as my laptop can barely load your site when ads are enabled - we’re talking almost 30 seconds of loading and crazy high CPU usage.

As an avid and appreciative reader I’d really like to disable the adblocker and support your work. I know I’m not the only one in this position so I assume this is an issue currently being looked at by the web-dev team. Will there be any significant changes in the near-future that would enable me to do this?
