If you found yourself in the New York City subway in the 1960s, you were probably lost. Mass confusion was the status quo. However, in 1967, the New York City Transit Authority hired Massimo Vignelli and Bob Noorda of the design firm Unimark International to design a signage and wayfinding system that would solve the problem. The work they delivered, the 1970 New York City Transit Authority Graphic Standards Manual, succeeded in that goal and, perhaps unintentionally, the Standards Manual became one of the world's classic examples of modern design.

This book is a reissue by New York-based publishing imprint Standards Manual, containing scans of Vignelli and Noorda's modernist masterpiece. It describes the design and construction for the iconic NYC subway signs that we still see and use today, but above all, it’s a beautiful and important piece of design history.
