Many tech fans apparently aren’t familiar with the market for coffee table books, and they couldn’t understand why Apple would release a seemingly simple book that cost so much money. It highlights a select history of Apple products dating back to 1997, beginning of course with the iconic Bondi Blue iMac. It featured a hard cover, colorful high-resolution images and nothing else.
However, for those die-hard Apple fan that does not want to drop US$ 300 on a book filled with photographs of Apple products, there's another coffee table book out there called "Iconic: A Photographic Tribute to Apple Innovation." It features fantastic images of Apple products just like Apple’s own coffee table book, but it only costs US$ 63 right now on Amazon.
Here’s the synopsis:
"With a breathtaking collection of unique photography, ICONIC: A Photographic Tribute to Apple Innovation takes the reader on a tour of the most visually stunning and important products produced by the world’s most innovative company Apple. Follow Apple’s journey through a photographic collection of their most important desktops, portables, peripherals, prototypes, iDevices (iPad, iPod and iPhone) and packaging.
Created as a tribute to the army of engineers, designers, product managers, and visionaries that navigated Apple through this incredible journey, ICONIC is the ultimate coffee table book for every Apple fan, and the perfect gift for any Apple owner who ever wanted to explore and discover the true roots of their favorite iMac, iPod, iPad, or iPhone."
