For estimating and progress control.

If only they knew how it would turn out.
A photo from my 1986 edition of ‘The Print Production Handbook’. I love the caption that reads: ‘The microcomputer in the photograph is typical of the simple inexpensive micros suitable for estimating and progress control applications in the production department.’
Having worked in print for 18 years I can honestly say I have only ever seen Apple Macs used for design. This photo was on the last page of the handbook, almost as if the computer was an afterthought.
An awesome book, helped me out no end back in the day.
