What sets this book apart ...10/11/11| Alan YostUnusually high quality / attention to detail in the photography. Some beautiful crops, nice macro details, and then pulled back; all create a sort of visual rhythm which only adds another level of interest to the amazing computer relics.
This is a keeper, the design is in perfect harmony with the book; universal binary magic.
beautiful book10/11/11| yifat gati saw this photographer work on 20x200, its such a powerful series of truly beautiful machines
Wonderful but there's a bug!10/11/11| Joe BuczekI really enjoyed looking at all the old iron wonderfully photographed at the Computer History Museum (which I also enjoy visiting!). But there was one unfortunate bug in the book: The description of the Macintosh on pg. 149 lists the microprocessor as a "6800" when it should have been a "68000". Perhaps if the book is revised they'll fix this pretty obvious error.
Old Friends10/11/11| Richard FriedmanHaving spent nearly 20 years working in and around Control Data 6600/7600 computers, seeing the old 6600 console made my knees weak. How many hours were spent looking into those big eyes!
What great iconic pictures of things I never thought I'd ever see again.
This is a keepsake of memories, not all digital.
Sexy Motherboards10/11/11| Holly GarrisonIf loving glossy photographs of vintage computers is wrong, I don't wanna be right. This is serious porn for geeks.There's just a certain something that clicks when you combine a 1960s design sensibility with a Sigma-5 Mainframe: tape drives have never looked better in turquoise.
