“The macOS App Icon Book” IRL

Guess what I received in the mail today?

You likely guessed it from the title, but I’ll say it anyway: The macOS App Icon Book.

Photograph of the cover of the “The macOS App Icon Book” which is black, hardbound, and has a iOS-shaped silver foil embossing on the front.

(If you didn’t catch it, I’ve written previously about my contribution to its prequel.)

This one got funded on Kickstarter a few months back and, fast-forward to today, it’s now a real-to-goodness physical book!

I am not a product photographer — I’ll leave that work to others — but it’s beautiful and I love it.

With this book, its prequel, and the prequel’s Japanese edition, I now own the suite — like Pokemon, I’ve caught them all.

Reminder: wonderful icons are created and introduced to the world every week, but we can’t ship updates to a physical book, so make sure you follow my iOS, macOS, and watchOS icon gallery sites for the latest and greatest.
