(Publishers review) '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.
Each manual has been lovingly photographed, and presented in a spacious and functional layout, allowing the reader to fully appreciate these wonderful examples of information design. Manuals 1 is printed in Italy, conforming to the highest production standards.
It comes with a foreword by Massimo Vignelli, and texts from Adrian Shaughnessy, Richard Danne (NASA designer), Greg D’Onofrio and Patricia Belen (Display), Armin Vit (Under Consideration), Sean Perkins (North), and John Lloyd. (source) www.uniteditions.com
