UltraPaint Manual

I received a package from America: the 30-year-old manual for UltraPaint, Deneba Software’s Macintosh graphics program. It doesn’t get much more exciting for me than this!


I love how the Option key in printed material from this era looks more like a 2-way switch symbol from an electrical circuit diagram than it does today.

The contents of the manual are very naibe compared to today, talking you through how to use menu items and dialog boxes. UltraPaint (and it’s follow-up artWORKS) was a sister app to Canvas. If you’re looking for something with the same tone and content as the manual, check out Deke McClelland’s Canvas 3.0: The Book over at Internet Archive.

Dear Reader

If by chance you have some old Deneba software for Macintosh that you’d be happy to sell then please get in touch. Specifically I’d like to buy copies of UltraPaint, artWORKS and Canvas 3.0 or 3.5. I don’t mind what condition they are in, I’m sure it adds character!
