To celebrate, we’re throwing a book-signing party tonight at the publisher’s HQ in San Francisco — and all Cult of Mac readers are invited. Please join me and the book’s award-winning designer, Derek Yee, at the No Starch Press offices. There will be a big sale (and free Chinese food, too)!

When tasked with designing The Cult of Mac, 2nd Edition, Derek Yee asked himself why there weren’t any books about Macs that looked like MacBooks. Then he cooked up a grand design that pays homage to awesome Apple products.

The new book, by Leander Kahney and David Pierini, is a follow-up to the original. It’s filled with all-new stories and photos of the Apple fans who never stop thinking different. (And it’s available now for preorder from Amazon.)

Get a sneak peek inside the book, along with the rest of the week’s top Apple news, reviews and how-tos, in your free issue of Cult of Mac Magazine.

Designer Derek Yee asked himself why there weren’t any books about Macs that looked like MacBooks.

So when the assignment came across his desk to design The Cult of Mac, 2nd Edition, he thought that making the upcoming book’s cover look and open like a silvery MacBook Pro was a winning idea.

His colleagues at No Starch Press weren’t so sure.
