Mad props to my parents for keeping our basement an Apple museum! Aside from a pristine Apple //c (with monochrome monitor), vintage Apple ][ ,and Mac SE/30 (with a color monitor card) they kept most if not all of our Mac and Apple programming books from my youth. A few games even survived, although my addiction to Wasteland forced my dad to ship several of the more fun games to my French cousins. So I took some quick pics and made a vintage Apple books and software gallery. Enjoy the trip down memory lane-- and if any of the authors of these books are around, let us know in the comments.
Some of my favorites:
- Chipwits - one of my favorite edutainment titles ever (and the original authors are trying to bring it back)
- Jeeves - before he hit the web he was your personal assistant
- Adventure Construction Set - taught me a lot about game design
- Using HyperCard - oh how I miss HyperCard
- The Elementary Apple - notable because of the binding, which was really useful when trying to type in programs
- The Halley Project - who didn't freak out when they heard their Apple start talking?
For some reason my copy of Racter is MIA.
