Apple is selling a $300 book that's just photos of its own gadgets, because Apple


Do you know someone that really, REALLY likes Apple? Someone who has the iPhone 7, an iPad, the new Macbook and the Apple Watch and still isn't satisfied?

Well, maybe that person would like a $300 book that's just 450 photos of Apple products without text. That book actually exists. It's called "Designed by Apple in California." Apple is selling it starting Wednesday.

The book is dedicated to the memory of Steve Jobs and features Apple products from the 1998 iMac to the Apple Pencil in 2015.

Like most Apple ads, the products are shown on a blank page, with no text.

And since Apple really likes minimalism, there's not even ink for the book's title on the spine.

Objects that appear so simple, coherent and inevitable that there could be no rational alternative.

The book, which Apple says took eight years to develop, describes its style as "deliberately spare," and shows unfinished products as well as the devices you already know. 

There's a $200 and $300 version in different sizes - 10.2 inches by 12.75 inches for the cheaper version and13 inches by 16.25 inches for the pricier one.
