If you’re looking at vintage Macintosh items then you certainly recognize Chiat\Day as the genius advertising agency Steve Jobs tasked with knocking the PC industry on their ear. And they did with the award-winning “1984” commercial – shown only once but still revered throughout advertising circles. Two of the creators; Steve Hayden and Lee Clow would walk from Chiat\Day to observe consumer interest and response to the Macintosh. Luckily I recognized the significance of Apple’s rising success and saved many items from that time. This is one of several items I will be auctioning. Only Authorized Apple dealers received this rare and precious framed art and this is over 30 years old. It is an original object provided by Apple – not a reproduction or copy. It hung in our computer store for many years and witnessed the revolution that Apple was leading. The frame is 22 1/4″ wide by 28 1/4″ tall and 3/4 of an inch thick. The frame is made from heavy-duty brushed aluminum and the posted is covered by clear acrylic. The lower right corner features the Apple logo. It has a device on the back to ease wall mounting. It weighs a significant 4 lbs. There are no wrinkles, tears or marks on the poster. I displayed this in my office at the computer software company where I worked for over a decade. It looked beautiful and everyone loved it and commented on its history. I work from home now and don’t have the space to display this beloved item any longer. Seeing and holding these items from the earliest days of the Macintosh is an amazing thing! The graphics, the old Apple logo, the overall creative design are so fun to see in your hand. Check the photos – this is in excellent condition for its age and history. It will be a valuable addition to any Apple enthusiast’s collection.
