I have that book. It’s pretty amazing to see what might have been - there are 20th Anniversary Mac-ish prototypes that were pretty amazing. It’s also cool to see how much thought went into details most people took for granted.

would anyone be interested in mirroring it again?

I once had occasion to speak with Mr. Kunkel, and he told me all sorts of great stories about things he found in the Apple archives. I think he later went on to do a similar project for Sony (they asked “How on earth did a book like that come out about Apple before anyone made a book like that about us?!” to which Mr. Kunkel replied “Um… I actually approached you guys first. You weren’t interested.”) Interesting guy.

You can buy the book through bookfinder (although $260 is a bit steep). There’s also a used one on amazon for $100.
