How To Get Apple’s Custom Font Celebrating 30 Years Of Mac

Apple left an easter egg (intentional or otherwise) in its new 30 years of Mac tribute website today: A custom font that depicts each Mac model from the past three decades of its history as a maker of personal computers. IOS developer and hacker Greg Barbosa discovered the icon set, and tweeted a link so that others could find and download it, too (via Seth Weintraub). The font uses special private characters so once installed, you won’t be able to just type to use it as you would a normal font, but you can copy and paste the different models from the OS X Font Book application and paste them into other applications. It’s a beautifully designed collection of Macs throughout the years reduced to simple, elegant line drawings, and there’s no telling how long it’ll remain available for download, so if you’re interested in having the collection for private use, it’s probably best to grab it now.
