Hmmm, must've missed this thread. Very nice to have, Considering my Redbook is in Canada...

Photoshop, Illustrator were the main programs used for creating the book, also a font creation program was used.

:D

It looks really nice. Pretty faithful to the original it seems.

Excellent. I've often seen mention of the Red Book but had never seen it. I'm surprised I'd never seen your site before. Great Job.

Very nicely done! It's so much easier to read than the scan that I have on my site.

Which page on your website?

Here's the direct link to the file in the PDF folder:

http://www.classiccmp.org/cini/pdf/Apple/Apple II Red Book.pdf

The HTML link is actually on the Systems page at the end of the Apple documents list. I have to admit it's not a great copy but I had borrowed it from a friend. I probably should spend some time fixing it up, but at least its mostly readable.

Your copy is the regular scanned copy that is floating around the internet, my copy is a recreation, not 100% accurate but getting there.

The hardest pages are still scans, mostly electronic diagrams.

I've received little or no feedback on the file, so i assume the interest is low.

I personally prefer leafing through it to cracking open my real one. Thanks for doing it. Are you interested in a list of nits? :D

I wouldn't say that interest is low. Although I like the "vintage" look of my PDF copy (which saved me from scanning book I have somewhere in the shop), your's is muuuuch easier to read. It is a great contribution because much of what's floating around is a bad scan.

Prints out nice too!

It's a pity I can't get it to work on older versions of Acrobat reader like 3 and 4. It just gives me an error and blank pages.

Thank YOU for the effort there Gerry!! It suddenly hit me that I have 3 Apple IIs (mostly IIe) sitting around. Sure would be good to have some reference material on them. So, I very quickly downloaded your pretty PDF.
