This retro Apple Mac poster is a thing of beauty

Before the Mac there was nothing. Nada. Zilch.

Whether mankind knew it or not, from the Big Bang to 1984, civilisation was just a bleak, empty, indiscriminate period of time in which we all just sat around waiting for some young go-getter with a penchant for black clothing to stride on a large stage and unveil the computer of the future.

And so it was. Unveiled by Steve Jobs in 1984, Apple's Macintosh (later known as the Macintosh 128k) was a showstopper, a game changer; the precursor for a tech revolution which would see Jobs and co. eventually hold assets similar to the GDP of a modest sized South American nation and lead to the sort of cult status which continues to see customers blindly snapping up whatever product they slap a small fruit logo on.

'To show just how far we’ve come, Dorothy has paid tribute to the first incarnation of the Mac in stunning style, dissecting the innards of one of this classic computer to expose a whole new world.

A world inhabited by tiny people doing tiny people things. We’re not sure of the health and safety aspects of Jobs squeezing so many diminutive people into actual monitors but - hey - this was the eighties.

Click on the image below to get a closer look, and if you like what you see, head over to Dorothy and buy the 3 colour litho print for £30.
