1975 NASA Graphics Standards Manual
For those that grew up in late '70s and '80s, the graphic designs of NASA are some of the most memorable of the period, appearing on everything from hats to the Space Shuttle. This reprinting of the NASA Graphics Standards Manual celebrates this outstanding identity system, which was used from 1975 to 1992. Recreated for public use for the first time from the personal copies of the original designers, Richard Danne and Bruce Blackburn, it covers the logo, placement, color schemes, and other design standards that helped capture the imagination of a generation and make the American space agency a lasting, iconic part of our legacy of exploration.
The book features a foreword by Richard Danne, an essay by Christopher Bonanos, scans of the original manual, reproductions of the original NASA 35mm slide presentation, and scans of the ‘Managers Guide’, a follow-up booklet distributed by NASA.
*Each copy comes specially wrapped in a foil static shield - the coolest packaging we've seen on Earth.
