NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual Reissue

Remember those fellas who found an original copy of the NYC Transit Authority Graphic Standards Manual in the basement of Pentagram? Well, they’re partnering with the MTA to release a limited run of manual through Kickstarter.

It won’t be exactly like the original manual. The original is ring bound in binder, but the reissue will feature a cloth hardcover and unaltered high-resolution scans of each page of the manual, all Smyth sewn together. It will measure 13.5” W × 13.5″ H (343 x 343 mm).There will be an introduction by Michael Bierut, and an essay by New York magazine writer Christopher Bonanos.

The manual will be printed in Italy on 100 and 140 gsm Munken Pure ivory offset paper. The cover, introduction, and essay headings will be set in a custom version of Standard Medium by type designer Nick Sherman, that he recreated from the photographs of the original manual.

This is a great way to get this wonderful piece of design history in the hands of more people. I’ve backed it.

Hi-Response, a truly modular WordPress theme. ↪ v.1.3 out now! Theme options and a highly modular layout system really sets a new standard. Shape the theme (without the need to code) with 3 page/post layout module generators, 5 taxonomy listing styles and theme options to control pretty much everything from layout, colors, typography and interaction. This enables you to tweak and stand out. We like to call it a fresh take on WordPress publishing.
