The poster in the picture belongs to Rob Blessin of Black Hole, Inc. I saw it at his old house, along with the little green figure on the monitor. Smile I may see him this weekend when I pick up some Colorstations that I purchased, so I'll ask him about it. Maybe it could be recreated in Photoshop?

I have the 1988 launch poster for the Cube framed on the wall of my office. I also have a copy of the "Ten Things" poster from the early 90's that I plan to frame for my art collection. I really need to find a copy of that station poster to complete the set.

I have never thought about scanning the poster. I may have to check with some graphic shops in Dallas to check the cost of scanning and printing copies. I also have a poster for the launch of the Sun Sparcstation 1.

Hi Nitro,

Please let me know what you find out. I can help with recreating this poster in Photoshop, or scanning an original. Just let me know.

Thanks

It would really be great if someone could scan them 300 dpi and put them on the internet as JPEGs for us all to see.

Sorry for the slow response. I talked to Rob yesterday and he said that as far as he knows, the poster is one of a kind, so he doesn’t have any for sale. However, he has some NeXTWorld posters for sale. You can contact him through the phone number / email address on his website at http://www.blackholeinc.com/specials/contact.shtml . There’s a copy of the NeXTstation image here if 68040 or someone else wants to do some Photoshop magic:

Classic computer projects and "hobby computer things to do" are so on the back burner with me. It may take me months to find spare time to arrange something like a scan of my posters. It's not that I don't want to get it done but between my $job and $kids and $wife and $second $job and $new house, I really have very few minutes to call my own.

This is something that I will look into but it may be a couple of months before I have a chance. I have three daughters, one wife and over 10k desktops to support that come first. When I do find something out, I'll post it ASAP.

Edit: I reread my post and I think it exhibits a bitchy tone that I didn't mean to convey. It's beena really rare day today. I'm sorry guys.

I just whipped up an SVG version - converted the GIF, enlarged the bitmap, and ran it through Inkscape's bitmap trace..

It's not perfect, and it's not an original, but it's plottable 8)

I just may run up to Kinko's and see what happens..



I need to look at some other posters for reference, and find out what the deal is with the tablecloth-looking shadow..

The SVGZ is 18"x24", but is resizable of course..

--
I messed around with it a little more..

Here's an Illustrator version
And a PDF Version
