Apple Web Design Guide Circa 1996

Sadly no pretty pictures to look at in this Apple Web Design Guide from 1996, a 39 page PDF, but it is an interesting insight into Apple as well as a nostalgic trip down memory lane, and in internet terms it can certainly be classified as vintage material.

You can download the PDF guide via DesignersTalk.com

The following excerpts are taken from the Apple Web Design Guide.
