THE SUPER CUTEST BOOK. IDEA EXCLUSIVE EDITION OF ASTERISK ARCHIVE'S 2020 INSTANTLY PERFECT POCKET BOOK OF APPLE COMPUTER APPAREL AND PRODUCTS. 100 NUMBERED COPIES ONLY. AND IT IS FASTEST FINGERS FIRST THIS TIME. THE MOST IRRESISTIBLE APPLE COMPUTER BY-PRODUCT, MIGHT JUST BE THIS BOOK!
Just want it too much already!
Seventy something pages of Apple Computer apparel. This double page winter sporting two favourites of recent IDEA newsletters; The North Face and Patagonia. We'd take both. The perfect pocket book was first published a month ago in an initial edition of 100 and sold straight out. This IDEA special edition has a stack of extra products including...
... to die for plastic cups. And...
... desperately wantable shoelaces. It is a staggeringly good collection that our friends at Asterisk have assembled.
Back to the past for this 1980's Back To The Future Apple logo mashup.
Dial up days of wine and roses. T-shirt design from the nineties - when it felt like everything was possible (as long as you were ready to wait twenty years for someone to make it happen).
Our favourite. Striped Border Windbreaker with (striped) Apple logo. And these items are for sale. First try following Asterisk on Instagram at @weareasterisk. Then flip to DM.
Get your bearings. This is the Asterisk store in Hong Kong. It's as cool as the book and back again!
OK! 100 copies (plus sticker). They cost £30. They are all numbered. They are - very likely - just about to sell out. Buy as many as you want. But if the first person buys all 100 copies - that'll be an instant refund! Keep it real!
Worldwide courier shipping for all. Hit the button.
ANOTHER BITE OF THE APPLE NOW. THIS IS THE 1997 ALL OUT SUPERBOOK APPLEDESIGN. WE HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT IT BEFORE SO WE WILL KEEP THIS BRIEF AND POWERFULLY PERSUASIVE AS USUAL.
Empty space of an historic cover.
Competition winning prototypes. Notebook sized personal assistant from 1989.
Really? We can imagine how (that worked), just not why.
And our favourite of favourite images from the book. Not only for the 'just casual like' wearable tech but also the Esprit belt and that inexplicable material half sleeve top! They make judo suits and bathmats out of that stuff, right?
All of which is somewhat off subject. The AppleDesign book is back in stock and on the store and hit the button below to read more.

Press to play. You can do this yourself. The facsimile cover shirt has the staples from that first issue lined up perfectly so you can... staple it for yourself. The display shirts in DSM have been stapled in our studio. Buy one and it is at your discretion to what degree of pain* you go to for reproductive accuracy.
*staples don't hurt at all - couldn't feel a thing - admittedly didn't try it with a nipple ring.
