Susan Kare, the noted interface designer, once referred to by the New York Times as “ the Betsy Ross of the personal computer” is now offering prints of some of her most engaging icons — the visual metaphors for computer commands — at Kare Prints (http://www.kareprints.com/).
Some of the prints offered feature her original icons for Apple’s Macintosh. The limited editions come in a range of colors and sizes and are numbered and signed.
Kare is a computer iconographer based in San Francisco. She has designed thousands of icons for the world’s leading companies that have become familiar to anyone who uses a computer.
All of the giclée prints (fine art prints created on an ink-jet printer) are made using archival pigment inks and 100% cotton rag paper. The prints range in size from 8.5 x 11 inches to 30 x 40 inches, and custom sizes (and custom editions) are available upon request.
There is a limited run of each print size, and each is inspected, signed and numbered personally by Kare. Icons offered cover a wide range of her work from the classic computer user interface elements and familiar digital Solitaire cards to a variety of iconic images such as a love letter, disco ball, and a coffee cup titled “Caffeine.”
