THE NEXT BOOK

After being fired from Apple, Steve Jobs created perhaps the most auteurist desktop computer ever manufactured, cyberpunkishly named “NeXTcube” and branded by blue chip industrial designer Paul Rand. This glowing third party manual is really more love letter than handbook (favorite line: While the cube is solid, monolithic, dark and quiet, the display is sleek, spread out, bright and sonic. It catches your attention with contrasts of darkness and light). 

For all the hyperbole, it was a remarkable machine, startlingly contemporary for its 1989 birthdate.
