Old Computer Book Covers
By James Grahame
Paul Panfalone took the time to scan a few covers from obsolete computer texts. He writes, "I have some vivid memories of random computer books kicking around the local library around the time I was in High School. Most of them were about a decade old at that time, dating back to the early 80s. Many were obsolete, but for some reason they were all readily available to loan out, whereas more relevant material was nowhere to be found. I always wondered if computer nerds had donated these books to the library the minute they became useless to them. I also recall thinking how strange it was that these books looked both old and new to me at the same time."
It unnerves me that I once owned three of these classics.
