@elb I love old books like that. I just scored a copy off Abe Books for $3.93 total.

@elb Oh that's such an old book! I might still have my copy ... probably bought in 1987 or thereabouts

@elb

why does the cover art on old tech books, manuals and documentation look so fucking amazing? what happened to the wizards and cyberspace and shit?

@AngryHortlerNoises @elb computers were a new frontier that held endless possibilities for the future, the programmers of that era were its pioneers. Now they're just gay content consumption machines.

@elb We need to collect a list of tech books, pamphlets and posters with magic or wizardry themes.
