What ever happened to hand-drawn manuals?

There is something personal about the hand-drawn art that permeated through every aspect of video game culture 20 years ago.  From magazines to box art to awesome little drawings in instruction manuals, hand-drawn art was everywhere.  Yesterday I wrote about Agro Soar, a Game Boy game based on a children’s television show in the 80’s and 90’s.  Below is the hand-drawn map for the game in the manual.  A work of art I’d say.
