The folks at Standards Manual are back at it again. Parks, their newest work, showcases 100 years of maps, brochures and ephemera. I’m a big fan of their work and own their 1975 NASA Graphics Manual.
The book showcases nearly a century of art, cartography, and printed materials in a compelling visual history of America’s national parks and evolving graphic design styles culminating in Massimo Vignelli’s iconic design system, the Unigrid.
The book is available now.
