From the creator of ShrineOfApple.com comes a beautiful new 350 page book intended as a tribute to Apple innovation and design. Check it out at iconic book.com and place your order now. Author Jonathan Zufi amazingly spent four years taking more than 150,000 photographs of over 500 Apple products, including many rare prototypes never seen in public.

Sold only through iconic book.com, Iconic is available in two versions: a cloth hardbound edition for $75 and a special edition, priced at $300, which includes an engraved slipcase, vintage computer casing and an exclusive print of a photograph from the book. If you ever owned a beige Mac you’ll appreciate the special tribute in the design. Check out the demo video:

Thanks, Jonathan. Your sincere dedication to preserving the history of Apple products is deeply appreciated.

For over a decade Dan Knight over at Low End Mac has been publishing useful information to help people get the most from their older Macs. For as long as I can remember it’s been a “go-to” site  for looking up specs, advice, recommendations, and those vital tips save hours of time when I begin a restoration project or ponder how to approach one. The Low End Mac sponsored LEM Swap mail group is invaluable for finding scarce parts  and meeting fellow collectors of vintage Mac gear.

For anyone who shares a love for older Macs, LEM is a vital resource that we’ve come to rely on and take for granted. Recently Dan posted a gentle plea on his site for donations which I hope you’ll take a moment to read and consider. The information he archives and shares for us is invaluable; please help keep it alive!
