    ONE E-BOOK, AND WE WILL MAIL YOU A BOOKPLATE: You'll get one digital copy of the book before it hits the bookstores and the webstores. And, we will mail you our bookplate with art by Apple co-founder Ron Wayne. This bookplate is not autographed or framed, it will just be separately mailed to you in a plain old white envelope. (because we can't figure out how to include it as part of an ebook delivery!).

    A HARDBACK BOOK WITH A BOOKPLATE: With this package, your book will be autographed by the author (me!), but admittedly it would be better if it were signed by a famous author (not me). This book comes with a book plate, inserted in the darn book! The bookplate has art by Apple co-founder Ron Wayne, but it is not autographed or framed. So there! Shipping in the continental U.S. is included.

    A HARDBACK BOOK WITH A RON WAYNE AUTOGRAPHED BOOKPLATE: You get a hardback book, and you get a bookplate that is autographed by Apple co-founder Ron Wayne. There is a limited number of these because Ron is 79 years old and he can only sign so many! So far, he's actually signed about 430, so we're gettin there. Yes, the bookplate is done before the book, and that's because not everything in life gets done in logical order, so just get over it, please! With this package, you get a hardback book signed by the author, and the bookplate with Ron's art, the bookplate is NOT framed, AND the bookplate is actually signed, autographed, by Ron. Shipping in the continental U.S. is included.

    HARDBACK BOOK AND FRAMED, AUTOGRAPHED PHOTO: This is an awesome package. You get a hardback book signed by the author. And you get a framed photograph, picturing an original Apple-1 board and the cover of the Apple-1 manual, which Ron Wayne drew the original artwork for. And, the photo is autographed by Ron, in a prominent signature. This photo is big! Its an 8 by 12 inch photo and comes in a nice frame. What a gift this would make! This is a limited edition, because I can only get Ron to sign so many. (The frame will be nice, but the one shown in the video is only a sample, and the final frame may differ in appearance.) Shipping in the continental U.S. is included.
