Book Pick: Iconic - A Photographic Tribute to Apple Innovation
Andy Ihnatko’s pick of the week on MacBreak Weekly 573 is “Iconic: A Photographic Tribute to Apple Innovation.” This is an amazing coffee table book. Apple came out with its own book recently, but this one includes products from the time before Steve Jobs had returned to the company. It covers all of the cool Apple design, even Apple II game controllers and the old Apple file servers.
Every page features beautiful photography, and it has quotes from Jony Ive and other people who were involved in Apple design throughout that are relevant and informative. The book even includes a lot of stuff Apple didn’t wind up making. It’s available in several different editions, with the cheapest one coming in at $50. The Special Edition of the book is housed in a case that looks just like an Apple II. The Ultimate Edition has a case with a glowing power button on the front.
