Standards Manual Bookstore is a minimalist space located in Brooklyn, New York, designed by Standards Manual. Standards Manual is an independent publishing imprint founded by designers Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth in 2014. They strive to archive and preserve lost artifacts of design history and make them available to future generations. Being designers themselves, they value high quality books. As an independent publisher, they are able to produce our books using only the finest papers, printing, and finishing methods. As a purveyor of graphic design books, they carry not only their own Standards Manual releases, but also a hand-picked selection of books from a variety of publishers.
