On May 3, 2016, Strand bookstore in New York organized a talk between Richard Danne, designer of the NASA Standards Manual, and Pentagram partner Michael Bierut.

The sold out event was a fantastic insight into Danne's creative process and the difficult time he had after the NASA "worm" logo was rescinded in 1992. 

If you were unable to make it to the event (or even if you were), you can now watch the full video here.


We're very happy to announce our third title, a facsimile reprint of the The American Revolution Bicentennial symbol graphics standards manual.

The American Revolution Bicentennial (ARB) symbol was the logo for America’s 200th birthday, and a precursor to the NASA logo that Bruce Blackburn would design a couple of years later.

The long-forgotten manual is now available as a perfect facsimile of the original, wrapped in a black blind embossed dust jacket, and features a foreword by Bruce Blackburn and an essay by New York magazine’s Christopher Bonanos.

Check out the book and get more information here.


We're on press in Minnesota for our next book.

Stay tuned for more information on this title which will be a slight departure in format for us. The prints are looking amazing and we're super excited to share it with you.

Hint: Fourth of July...


We're wrapping up the 2nd printing of the NASA and NYCTA book here in Verona, Italy. 

It's a pleasure to work with such talented and detail orientated printers. It's amazing to see the care that goes into each stage of the printing process, from the digital files to the finished sheets.
