The ATom Anthology was a special one shot publication of Arthur Thomson's art work.

The ATom Anthology was produced by Ella Parker and published in May 1961.

It was a 108 page, mimeographed fanzine. Many of the drawings were specially redrawn for the publication by Thomson. Due to the available technology for printing reproduction at that time, Thomson had to hand cut new stencils.

The work was worth it, since The ATom Anthology was voted Best British Fanzine for the year 1961 by the Skyrack Readers Fan Poll.

The ATom Anthology featured an introduction by Walt Willis, Arthur Thomson's columns from Ploy, his covers for Hyphen, exceprts from Fan BEMS, 62 cartoons, and 63 illustrations, as well as articles and other artwork.
