Hi,

I just received my copy of this book: http://www.digitalretro.co.uk/, note the sub-title 'the evolution and design of the personal computer'.

It covers 44 machines with glourious photography (usually 4 pages per machine), and is a mix of computer history and design. Please buy (or better still ask your library to buy!) or put on your pressie list, only 13.96 from Amazon.

Enjoy,
John

Gordon took many of his photos for the book at our museum, so I'm glad to see it's not just us buying copies!

I read the review of the book in one of the English magazines that get sold at Barnes and Noble over here. Looks very cool. Will buy it when it comes 'round.
I guess most of you have also heard of "Fire in the Valley...". I didn't buy it, but flipped through it at the store :D.
