A dozen previously unknown works created by Andy Warhol have been recovered from 30-year-old Amiga disks.
The art experiments were produced in 1985 by Warhol under commission from Commodore - creator of the Amiga computer.
Commodore paid the artist to produce a series of works to aid the launch of the Amiga 1000.
A painstaking three-year project was required to recover the images which were saved in an obscure data format.

What's so special about Warhol?

Thanks - I figured the problem was at the end of the tag, didn't even consider it was a secure link.
