Things we love // The Smith Journal
‘Fonts In Space” is one of our favourite discoveries in issue 24. Exciting news: The 90 page NASA Graphics Standards Manual first launched in 1976, is now back in print! It shows the design classic NASA ‘worm' logo applied to all things spaceage from shuttles to company cars. This is design geekery from another galaxy. .
Our favourite quote "NASA director James Fletcher was so bothered by the missing crossbars on the ‘worms’ letter A’s, he complained NASA wasn’t getting their money’s worth.”
The book can be purchased at standardsmanual.com
ZZ are big fans of old school craftsmanship being kept alive, especially when it involves the crafty knowledge of type and print. This photo is of Tilley Printing in Ledbury, Herefordshire and was taken by our friend @amandajaxnphoto
