I was looking at Apple's 2016 book 'Designed by Apple in California' and was looking to buy a copy but I still can't understand the $500 price tag.

 


Does anyone else have a copy that they no longer require? Also what are your thoughts on the book. Mods please move to correct category if placed wrong.

Does that book cost more than an actual Bentley ?  Because that book had a awful lot of $$$ attached to it.

If you wanted to make a hard copy of the PDF, you'd need a 3D printer to do the cover - all the bling etc.
