Iconic

Whether you're a completely-obsessed Apple fanboy, or just an industrial or packaging designer looking for inspiration, Iconic: A Photographic Tribute to Apple Innovation ($75 or $300) is the coffee table book for you. Filled from cover to cover with carefully-shot photos documenting the evolution of Apple products from the Apple II to the iMac, this book details Apple's rise from a two-man company in a Silicon Valley garage to one of the top producers of consumer electronics in the world. See full-color photos of desktops, portables, iPhones, iPods, prototypes, and packaging, accompanied by introductions and quotes from Apple insiders. If you're really wild about Apple, opt for the special edition which comes in a specially-made retro peripheral case celebrating computing products from the late 70s and early 80s.
