Yesterday Issue #2 of The Manual arrived. I cracked it open to read just one article before bed and wound up reading the entire thing straight through. I really do love that this publication exists. Sure, these articles would make fine blog posts, but there’s something about reading The Manual without the glow of a window-filled monitor or sound of email notification dings to stifle your attention. It gives one the space to think about their work beyond the tasks directly in front of them. Plus, it’s nice to read a string of articles that feel lovingly pulled together and beautifully presented.
