Manuals 1: Design & Identity Guidelines
This book sold out shortly after it was first published in 2014. Now, thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign it’s back in print. Manuals 1: Design & Identity Guidelines is the first comprehensive study of corporate identity design manuals, and features 20 examples from the 1960s to early 1980s – the golden era of identity design. The book includes manuals created for institutions and corporations such as NASA, Lufthansa and British Steel.
All 20 manuals have been lovingly photographed, and presented in a spacious and functional layout, allowing the observer to fully appreciate these wonderful examples of information design at its best. Manuals 1 is printed in Italy, conforming to the highest production standards.
Foreword by Massimo Vignelli and texts by Adrian Shaughnessy, NASA designer Richard Danne, Greg D’Onofrio and Patricia Belen (Display), Armin Vit (Under Consideration), Sean Perkins (North) and John Lloyd.
