I was fortunate enough to go to lunch with Charlie Cramer and Bill Atkinson last week. Charlie is a photographer who’s work I’ve enjoyed for decades. Bill was one of the original members of the Macintosh team and was responsible for creating MacPaint back in 1984.
It was fun chatting with Bill about the early days of the Mac… early graphics tablets from the Apple ][ days and MacVision and ThunderScan from early Mac days. If you haven’t had a chance to check out Bill’s book With The Stone, then you’re missing out on one of the highest quality fine art books I’ve seen printed. The book would usually cost over $90 a copy, but Bill was able to do some trade for the printer, which allows him to sell signed copies for only $40. You can see many examples of the photographs on Bill’s web site.
