Thrift store - Think Different book and Kodak instant camera

Recommended Posts

I had some time after a doctor's appointment and went into a thift store and this camera jumped right out at me. It came with a matching leather carrying case for $10 CAD. Even though this picture is from a  French site it only has English controls, mine must be a Canadian version because all the controls are in French and English.

The more interesting thing caught my eye on the way out was a book called "1998: The year of thinking different". I remember the advertisements and wouldn't normally go for a book like that but it was only $2 CAD in decent shape. I did some research and found it was a limited run originally given to Apple employees. I'm not sure how it arrived in Ontario, Canada but I thought it was pretty neat. Does anyone know how to check if this is an original print or if it's a reprint? I've checked the back and front covers and can't see anything. It seems like the other copies have sold for for $75. So I'm ahead on that!

 

Not my picture by the same book. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/apple-computer-1998-think-different-1784760914

Very cool stuff, the book has all the think different poster portraits? Kodak's Polaroid knockoffs must be rarities as the film supply dropped off to nothing precipitously after Polaroid's patent claims were upheld? No reason to hold onto them at all I guess.

Kodak killed off their line in 1986. Fujifilm picked up the technology and created what later became Instax. It may not be a useful camera, but a a nice relic of technology from the early 80s.
