Guides on emulating older applications

The PowerBook 1400 had a unique transparent lid under which users could display artwork to give their Book some bling. Several ready-made inserts were included, and the 1400 preload carried a template for designing your own. (There were also third-party options, like a solar panel lid that would extend battery life!)

First hosted file, PB1400_BookCover_Tmplt-01.tgz:
Apple loaded a PostScript template in PowerBook 1400. You can use the BookCover Template to create your own artwork to personalize your PowerBook 1400 series computer.
