Reprinting and French Translation of Danne & Blackburn’s
Graphics Standards Manual for the Redesign of NASA’s Visual Identity.
The project of Empire Editions is to reprint this iconic work with a French translation as well as a visual translation of its contents. Richard Danne, the design director for NASA’s visual identity, has been contacted and he expressed his interest and enthusiasm at the prospect of the publication being at the center of different editorial projects throughout the world.
In order to ensure that it is a widely distributed and easily accessible object of study for graphic designers and amateurs alike, this translation will be modestly priced at 20 euros. This economic imperative has lead to clear choices regarding the translation of the text and visual presentation.
