For System 6.x - Mac OS 8 - 8.1

This is bundled software by Aldus, produced on the eve of their demise as a software giant of the late 1980's and early 1990's, just prior to Adobe acquiring and absorbing (then killing off) most of their inventory.

Comprising of five 1.4MB floppy disks, this install set contains full software installs of "Aldus SuperPaint v3.5" and "Aldus HomePublisher v.2.0.2" (previously distributed as: Aldus Personal Press).

Targeting the "home consumer market", it also includes bundled Bitstream fonts and EPS clip art.

All of the bundled software can be selectively installed as an option. Personalization is asked for, a serial number is not required.

This floppy disk set is imaged in Disk Copy 4.2 format. Use Disk Copy 6.3 to mount the images for installing. Or, if running System 6, use MountImage to mount the disks. Or, drop the images into an emulator's open window to mount (Mini vMac or Mini vMac II). Of course, these images can also be written back to floppy disk media, using Disk Copy 4.2 and 6, etc, if necessary.
