Adobe Illustrator was first developed for the Apple Macintosh in 1986 (shipping in January 1987) as a commercialization of Adobe's in-house font development software and PostScript file format."

Adobe Illustrator is the companion product of Adobe Photoshop. Photoshop is primarily geared toward digital photo manipulation and photorealistic styles of computer illustration, while Illustrator provides results in the typesetting and logo graphic areas of design. Early magazine advertisements (featured in graphic design trade magazines such as Communication Arts) referred to the product as 'the Adobe Illustrator'. Illustrator 88 was released in 1988 and introduced many new tools and features. As of 2011, the Adobe Illustrator '88 file format is used in the MATLAB programming language as an option to save figures.

I was going based on the description which states that 88 = v1.7

You'll have to take it up with MCP, who hasn't been on in a long long time to the best of my knowledge.

@finkmac: These were archived using MacZip on a classic Mac OS. It preserves Mac Resource Forks using a proprietary method. So for best results, unzip using MacZip (available here at the Garden).

Using MacZip, the archive unzips OK, the disk images are in DiskDup+ floppy disk image format (typical of MCP's archiving). If you don't have DiskDup+ installed, they'll mount just fine if you drag them onto a Disk Copy 6.x icon or open window.

ShrinkWrap should mount them OK too, if you use MacZip to extract, as the File & Creator types of the DiskDup+ files will be restored correctly.

How in the world are you supposed to write these images?
Shrinkwrap refuses to mount them.

A classic. An absolute classic. I can see how Freehand surpassed it early, for ease of use, but the sheer design freedom, and power to create made this a classic. I remember using Freehand 3.11 and Illustrator 88, and PageMaker 4.2 (and Cricket Draw and LaserFX) to create a student magazine. If Aldus kept there eye on the ball, they could be bigger than Adobe now, if they didn't MERGE!

Pagemaker was bearable, Freehand was very good, PrePrint was very handy. hmmm, Adobe bought up Silicon Beach Software as well. Shame.
