Manuals 1 quickly sold out, but fortunately Unit’s Tony Brook and Adrian Shaughnessy have delved into the archives of a new set of international companies to present Manuals 2.
Manuals 2 presents some of the classic corporate identity projects from the past decades, including IBM, Westinghouse, Bell and the Dutch Police.
The book also features some more up-to-date guidelines, of the RAC and First Direct identities.
Like the first edition, Manuals 2 photographs each of the guidelines and provides a meticulous description of them.
The book also features an essay by design historian Roger Remington, a text by Martha Fleming, daughter of Allan Fleming, whose Canadian Railways logo is featured, interviews with the likes of Liza Enebeis and John Bateson and a foreword by Lance Wyman.
Manuals 2, by Tony Brook and Adrian Shaughnessy, is published by Unit Editions priced at £75.
