Design Standards Manuals: Their meaning and use for federal designers by Bruce Blackburn, October 1977. Federal Design Library, National Endowment for the Arts, Washington, D.C. 6 x 9.125, pp. 44 plus covers. U.S. Government Printing Office.
The Federal Design Library was a series presenting information and ideas related to federal design. This small, practical booklet is based on a presentation made at the Second Studio Seminar for Federal Graphic Designers held at the Illinois Institute of Technology, November 9, 1976 and sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of the Federal Design Improvement Program (wow!). devoted to Graphics Standards Manuals.
Featuring a short text About Graphics Standards Manuals, About the Author (Bruce Blackburn) and Three Presentations covering: What a Design Manual Is, the American Revolution Bicentennial Symbol, and the NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) Graphics Standards Manual with a short Q&A with Blackburn about the project. Illustrated with more than 50 black and white images. Excellent!
An increasingly hard to find, nearly fine softcover booklet with a hint of wear.
