Could this be the precursor to the Apple logo?
I shot a little commercial in Paris last week, and the best thing I saw was a little place called La Galcante, an antique periodical shop packed full of vintage French magazines, postcards, promotional stills, it was delicious.
And a stack of magazines caught my attention. First, it was named the same as me. Second, it was basically a French Playboy published from 1925-1973. (This is the only Wikipedia entry I could find.) And I when I leafed through it, I found something that astonished me: its logo was our beloved Apple logo, but published WAY before the founding of Apple Computer. The bite is even from the same side of the apple.
I mean, the mythology of the apple being what is, it makes sense how two companies could end up here. It makes even more sense for a girlie mag. But still, a little piece of tech history? I left with four issues, lmk if you want to borrow them.
