Excuse the newbie question! I am new to pinball but hoping to get my adolescent favorite, TAF, before too long. Outside of pinball, I have collected original artwork for years and really like some of the backglass artwork I've seen. (I'm particularly taken with Viper and Iron Maiden if anyone knows if that original artwork - ie the 1/1 handpainted pieces not the mass production pieces - exists?).

I was wondering if there is a database or other way to look up which artist illustrated which backglass?

Also interested to know if there are any articles or readings on any of the individual artists anywhere?

Would love to hear from any collectors of pinball art of fans of particular pieces in this thread if you are reading this also!

thanks everyone!

I believe the Mr pinball price guides have a section for the designers and artists showing what games they worked on.
