Motorola 68000 "Art"

I got an email message today about an image I posted some long time ago of a poster for the Motorola 68000 processor. The original image is a black and white test of image detail with my then-new cell phone.

Well, looking back at that old image is downright embarrassing. So here's a better one, and some other M68000-related images to go with it.

Motorola 68000 promotional poster with chip die image.
My poster from the Wescon conference after the 68000 was introduced. It came with a 68000 die tacky-glued to the poster, which I've since misplaced.
