More Manuals from Unit Editions

At the beginning of the year design publisher Unit Editions published Manuals 1 – a collection of corporate identity guidelines featuring such gems as the NASA, Randstad and British Telecom branding.

Unit Editions

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.

Unit Editions

Manuals 2 presents some of the classic corporate identity projects from the past decades, including IBM, Westinghouse, Bell and the Dutch Police.

Unit Editions

The book also features some more up-to-date guidelines, of the RAC and First Direct identities.

Unit Editions

Like the first edition, Manuals 2 photographs each of the guidelines and provides a meticulous description of them.

Unit Editions

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.

Unit Editions

Manuals 2, by Tony Brook and Adrian Shaughnessy, is published by Unit Editions priced at £75.
