Amusement Machines
by Lynn F. Pearson

Amusement machines were all built for the exact same purpose: parting customers from their hard-earned money. Yet the ways in which these machines have done this is as varied as the glorious designs that have adorned them. Machines range from the mutoscopes that showed 'What the Butler Saw', through to pinball machines, fruit machines, the classic one-armed bandit, and the penny slot machines that are so evocative of seaside holidays and Edwardian amusements. They continue up to more modern versions of the amusement machine, like table football and golf machines. Amusement Machines charts this stunning range, and investigates the changes in their design and evolution over time.
