Vignelli and the Standards Manual

In 2013, I spent a day at the home of Massimo Vignelli. I'd asked Massimo if I could come over and photograph him and has wife Lella, sort of a ‘day in the life’ thing. This was about a year before he passed away, and at this point he was his usual, charismatic self. Among the photographs I took that day was this image of Vignelli at work alongside his personal copy of the NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual.

We're pleased to offer this original black and white photograph of Vignelli in collaboration with the folks at Standards Manual. This is a numbered edition of 50 copies, each signed on verso.
