Macintosh "Mister Macintosh Logo" Pins
The following two pins are from the collection of Daniel Kottke and depict the original "Macintosh Man" (a man in a Macintosh overcoat) or "Mister Macintosh" logo used briefly by the Macintosh Division at Apple in 1983. Mister Macintosh also appears etched into logic board designs in this period but disappears to be replaced by the Macintosh serifed-font logo by launch time at the end of 1983. As Andy Hertzfeld writes his story called Mister Macintosh on Folklore.org about the origin of this little guy, the logo was designed by the Belgian artist Folon. Lets hear what Andy has to say below:
