Cover of Chris Espinosa's Apple II Reference Manual ("The Red Book"), with various marginal notes, annotations, and doodles. Espinosa's revision of the manual, under the direction of Jef Raskin, during his freshman year at U.C. Berkeley has become the stuff of Apple legend. The project was finished during Espinosa's Christmas break; for a time, he slept in a local park or sneaked into the closed dormitories, rather than drive to his family's house on the Peninsula.
