Atwood et al. Shill for Apple

An advert published twenty-five years ago this month in Books in Canada finds McClelland and Stewart under the sway of the "computer evangelicals of Apple Canada Inc." I had no idea such people existed. Could it be that I was out when they came to call? My first computer, bought the following year, was a PC. I've since seen the light.


  1. I love that Karsh was brought in to take the photograph. Only photograph he ever took of a computer I imagine.

  2. Who knew Karsh did ads? Not me. A really nice photo, but it does raise an obvious question: Where are Farley and Pierre?

  3. Karsh did a lot of stuff you'd think of as more appropriate for your typical jobbing photographer. My stepfather has baby portraits done by him.
