Many years ago, Green Apple had a mailing list. Not an email list (which you should be on if you're reading this; join here). And we produced a (quarterly?) catalog of new books. I stumbled on a batch of them recently. They're from the late 1980s and early 1990s, judging from the books featured therein.
Within I found some timelessness, both in the irreverent attitude of the production (see cover #1 below) and in the content: there's Philip Roth with a new book, and Martin Amis, and Alice Munro and a Jack London biography.
Key differences? Sales tax (according to the order form on the back) was 6.5%. Hardcovers averaged $18.95. How quaint, huh?
Here are scanned covers of four newsletters from years passed. I kind of think that last one would make a nice Green Apple t-shirt, huh?
