Earlier this year we opened our bookstore in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, where we sell a carefully selected collection of graphic design books that range from newly published monographs to rare vintage classics. We aim to provide a thoughtful selection that is relevant to young and seasoned designers alike. At a time when PDFs are more ubiquitous than printed books, we think it’s important to preserve the physical space where like-minded people can gather and explore new ideas.
After witnessing enthusiasm for the bookstore from the international design community, we decided to make our offerings available to purchase in the Standards Manual online shop. We think good design should be available to everyone, regardless of location.
If you’re in Greenpoint, we’d love for you to stop by to say hello and browse the books — and for those who live elsewhere, we’re open to suggestions of titles you’d like us to stock.
