The Mac Designers Handbook

I recently found my copy of The Mac Designers Handbook. Stuffed in a box with an old Zip drive and some disks.

It’s an intro into using the Mac as part of the design process. First published in 1992. I bought the book when I started using an Apple Mac around 1994.

The Mac Designers Handbook covers everything that may seem obvious today. How to structure folders, how fonts and images are handled, using a scanner. This was before Windows 95 was released. At that time the Mac only had 8mb of RAM, running MacOS 7. Page layout was done in QuarkXpress 3.0 or Aldus Pagemaker. Adobe went on to purchase Pagemaker, and eventually used it as a blueprint for Indesign 1.0, released in 1999.
