Weekend Heller: Graphic Standards Celebrated
The lads at Unit Editions have done it again. The second volume of corporate identity standards manuals is ready to be scarfed up by the voracious design fetishists out there. But more than a feast for the eye, Manuals 2: Design & Identity Guidelines is a testament to how inventive entrepreneurial business models will keep the printed book alive and well.
Manuals 2 picks up where Manuals 1 left off, featuring 20 American and European design manuals—gems of design precision—by masters of the old CI art and craft. Included are Lester Beall, Paul Rand, Allan Fleming, Total Design, Alan Fletcher, Otl Aicher, Studio Dumbar and North.
What’s more, these Unit Editions are made to last and to love.
