Yes Dialogue mac desktop

Here’s a shot of part of the ST33Books desktop while the corrections to the Yes Dialogue book were being organised. The office has always been Mac based.  These days the larger G4 and G5 machines are used less often, and most of the day to day work is done on the two laptops.  These are then linked to the larger Mac studio monitor for split screening for the more critical stages of the project.  The Mac studio display is still great to use, even though it dates from circa 2001. It gets harder to find the special adapter for these to work with a Mac laptop but our IT providers found one in a box of odds and ends a few years ago to enable us to connect it all up. It seemed steep at £60 then but apparently they fetch big bucks on auction sites now.

You can see the proof copy of the book and also a few earlier printed single page proofs with an earlier layout idea on them.
