Video games collector site Digital Press has started posting downloadable PDF issues from Ion International's early 80s magazine Videogaming Illustrated. The bi-monthly publication debuted in August 1982 under several variations of its original title (Videogaming and Computer Gaming Illustrated, Video and Computer Gaming Illustrated) before that magazine was killed off in March 1984.

The selection of PDF images is still incomplete, but you can already grab seven different installments full of classic video game advertisements, previews, and feature articles like "Astronaut Defends Videogames" (April 1983) and "The Videogame Which Takes Six Months To Play" (Dec. 1982). You can download the Videogaming Illustrated issues here.
