The first standards manual to directly approach the problem of logo placement and proportion when decal-ing your spaceship.

A modernist masterpiece and the zenith of brand identity documents.

Also how many books have you seen with instructions for painting your space shuttle?

The NASA Graphics Standards Manual is a gorgeous and fascinating look at NASA's visual history. There's nothing wrong at all with the reproduced manual. The book loses a star, however, for the disjointed and difficult-to-follow introduction which references images based on page numbers that aren't printed in the book and dubious historical anecdotes (like PowerPoint being in widespread use by NASA engineers years before the software's original release).

Interesting approach to one of the lines most recognizable brands worldwide. however there becomes little more than a manual or an interesting document about using a brand.
If I were a manual on how to use a machine also we would give good grades?

This is a great reproduction and re-presentation of the standards manual for the iconic NASA brand identity designed by the firm Danne & Blackburn. The logo and its modernist roots are now cemented in a generation who grew up in the space shuttle age.

Even though this graphic identity is now longer used by NASA as its primary one, “the worm” is a wonderful example of design done well in the governmental context.
