INTRODUCING ICONIC: A PHOTOGRAPHIC TRIBUTE TO APPLE INNOVATION
THE MOST DEFINITIVE HOMAGE TO APPLE PRODUCTS EVER PRODUCED
Die-Hard Apple Fan Collected and Photographed Over 500 Apple Products Including Rare, Never-Seen-Before Prototypes
Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Writes the Book’s Foreword
ATLANTA, GA, October 2014 — After four years, 150,000 photographs, 500 products, and 340 pages—Jonathan Zufi, a die-hard Apple enthusiast, publishes ICONIC: A Photographic Tribute to Apple Innovation.
Billed as a tribute to Apple innovation and design, Jonathan Zufi had a dream to photograph every single product made by Apple since 1976, from the first Apple 1 to the latest iPhone. He set out in his basement, as Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak started out in their garage, to scour eBay and find and photograph every Apple product he could get his hands on, including rare prototypes never photographed before. Zufi built his own photo studio in his basement, purchased a top-of-the-line camera, and one-by-one, he took 150,000 photos of more than 500 Apple products over a four-year cycle.
From this journey came a self-published, hardcover “coffee table” book that is the most definitive tribute to Apple products ever produced. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak wrote the foreword, as did industry veteran and highly respected journalist Jim Dalrymple of The Loop. The book features commentaries from top technology industry executives including Chet Pipkin, CEO of Belkin International, Apple’s first employee Bill Hernandez and author and marketing guru Ken Segall.
“When Jonathan showed me an early draft of ICONIC, memories of the many amazing products that have come out of Apple…came flooding back,” wrote Wozniak. “The beauty of design that Apple is known for deserves beautiful photography, and that is what Jonathan has given us…the likes of which I’ve never seen compiled before.”
