The evolution of the machines of the computer age is a story of groundbreaking innovation. From the beginnings of computer technology through bulky mainframes to the era of personal computers. The new book »The Computer,« edited and designed by vista, takes readers from the first analog computing machines in the 19th century, through early experiments with autonomous driving in the 1920s and oversized office computers in the 1950s, to the laptops and wearables of today. With its 472 pages, the publication uses infographics to explain basic technical concepts. Historical graphic design and rare photographs bring the history of major technology companies to life.
