300$ for a book, yes an actual book not a new App or machine with name,
it’s an actual high quality paper book.
that’s more than you will ever spend on any book for that matter.
to put in perspective the whole Harry Potter book series will cost you 45$,
and any high quality book will mostly never exceed 60$ .
The Apple Book
it’s really incredible to know that Apple have been developing this book for 8 years; for a book.
it contain pictures of the all Apple products ever made,
Apple actually didn’t have some of the legacy products pictured in the book they had to buy it from third parties to get the high quality sketches.
The book which is name ” Deigned By Apple in California” comes in a very neat all white packaging, and it feels incredibly heavy almost 5KG,
it covers products from 1998’s iMac to 2015’s Apple Pencil,
also documents the materials and techniques used by Apple’s design team over two decades of innovation.
The book material is really rich, we don’t claim to be experts in paper industry but the cover and the pages really feels like high quality.
in the first two pages after the title page , the book is dedicated to Steve Jobs.
The products in this book are the result of a profoundly close collaboration between many different groups. Shot by photographer Andrew Zuckerman in a deliberately spare style, the book’s 450 images illustrate Apple’s design process as well as its finished products.
