    Excellent, with one caveat.

    Posted by Joseph Johnston on Nov 17th 2021

    What a wonderful compendium containing not only the full 1976 NASA graphics standards manual, but also quite a bit about the history of the document. It's fantastic! What I would have liked to see, however, is a re-setting of the original, with remade graphics instead of scans of the original manual. It's awesome seeing the original, sure, but I'd like to see these graphics in crystal clear vector-based artwork. It's still excellent, but just a touch disappointing.
