"[E]veryone in the world wanted to be part of Apple."
By Gordon Thygeson
Visual history of Apple through the lens of employee-designed company t-shirts.
Fine in near-fine jacket.
"A t-shirt can be worn at Apple like a military officer wears medals – to show a proud history of accomplishment."
The history of Apple in t-shirt form, from 1977 to 1997, with each of the 1000-plus designs captioned with explanations of each creator's role and project, showing the technical development of Apple's products through the two decades that saw the rise of the personal computer.
An important corporate record of an inherently ephemeral form, essentially produced in house before Apple's second renaissance. A sentimental paean to the days of Wozniak and Jobs, and a fascinatingly focused timeline of visual design.
