Original vintage Apple Computer logo kite that was originally sold as part of the Apple Gift Catalog from 1983. The sail measures 19.5″ x 21.5″ and prominently features Rob Janoff’s iconic rainbow Apple logo centered against an off-white background; and the kite’s rainbow-colored tail approximately measures an impressive 25´ in length. The sail retains its original central spine, its curved edge spar, and its green tassels to either side. In fine condition, with creasing and very light wear.
The consignor notes that this Apple kite originates from Alpha Computers of Richland, a computer shop in Richland, Washington, that was owned by her father in the early 1980s. The store specialized in Apple computer products and provided customers with repair services as well as hands-on computer training. This kite was displayed proudly behind the store's front counter.
