My Favorite Apple

Remembering Steve Jobs-My Giclee print

Written By: Scott - Oct• 25•11

Even though Steve was only 6 years older than me, in a sense he was a rock star or put another way, he was my hero.

He personified Apple, its culture, its fans, its machines and its history.

After his death close to a month ago, I wanted something significant to serve as a remembrance. I didn’t want it to be my iPad or iPhone, or any of the vintage Apple stuff in my collection. No, I wanted something more personal. Something to represent who he was. Well, I found it.

A limited edition “Think Different” Steve Jobs 2 print. It is 16.5X17.5 inches. It is a Giclee print- printed with the same printer as the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Giclee is a high resolution digital print created by a series of tiny jets spraying millions of droplets of printing ink onto the highest quality archival artists’ paper- in this case mold-made, 100% cotton artist paper imported from France. Interestingly the spray generates more than four million droplets of ink per second and the resolution is two to three times that of lithographs or serigraphy; a Giclee captures every nuance of an original.  The result is a stunning work. Numerous examples of giclee prints can be found in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Chelsea Galleries.

Atypical for us guys- I even had it matted and framed. We used a bright red metal frame to set off the black and accent the vintage logo colors.
