Description


Very rare color 24 x 30 poster promoting the inaugural NeXTWORLD Expo held at San Francisco's Civic Auditorium and Brooks Hall on January 22–24, 1992, signed in the upper border in black ink by Jobs. Rolled and in fine condition, with some minor edge creasing. The consignor of this piece worked for Canon USA and was demonstrating the NeXT computers in a booth at the expo; Jobs signed this poster in person just before the show opened. Having resigned from Apple in the fall of 1985, Jobs founded the innovative NeXT project, a computer and software company aimed at the markets of business and higher education. The first NeXT Computer was introduced in 1988, and then the smaller NeXTstation two years later, and while computers encountered subpar sales, the NeXTSTEP operating system and development environment proved highly influential. Apple purchased NeXT in 1997 for $429 million and 1.5 million shares of Apple stock, with Jobs, as part of the agreement, returning to the company he had co-founded in 1976. Authentically signed Steve Jobs material is exceedingly hard to find, with this vibrantly colored poster serving as a unique and highly visual example. Pre-certified Beckett Authentication Services.
