Description

This is a red, black and white brochure for General Electric BASIC. The front cover background is beige with red lines, to look like college rule paper. The title is on the middle and the word BASIC looks like it is written in red crayon. The General Electric logo is on the bottom of the front cover. The first part is an introduction of BASIC. The subsections are You can't afford to wait for answers; BASIC makes it possible; You dial the computer right from your office; BASIC is for beginners; and BASIC is for experienced programmers, too. There are illustrations for each section, and they look like they are drawn in red crayon, much like the cover. Following is a list of additional features and then a section with quotes from BASIC customers. The back cover has a list of GE Information Processing Centers, with the logo on the bottom center.
