Pixel Nation is a fiercely independent publishing company, specialising in hard print publications about video game history, art, design and culture. We celebrate our independence and all that it brings to us, allowing us to create bespoke niche market products of the highest artistic integrity... products that a mainstream corporate publisher could never take on board.
Pixel Nation is an organically created, independently run company, celebrating all that is positive and unique about the limited edition print medium.
There has been an opinion that printed medium is dying, with future communication and media being the sole realm of the internet, but Pixel Nation must disagree. Print media is not dying, it is just evolving. Pixel Nation will not attempt to compete with the myriad of online sources for the same subject matter, nor compete with similar corporate published magazines and books.
We believe in a technological age where media is being buried behind layers of simulation, there is a great deal to be said for tactile, high quality, printed items.
