The Manual on Tuts+

The Manual

Back in 2011, Andy McMillan launched a KickStarter campaign to help him realise a dream: publishing a beautifully crafted design journal, with a focus on the maturing web industry. Each edition would contain thought-provoking and deeply personal lessons by six contributors, plus illustrations, and would be exclusively available as a high-quality printed book.

Those of you who have any of the original printed volumes will testify to their richness and quality (I’m a sucker for a bit of paper).

Fast-forward a few years to the present day and a follow-up KickStarter campaign which is taking The Manual to more formats, including eBooks, audio books, and even a freely available version in the browser.

“By choosing to publish our articles and lessons as ebooks, audiobooks, and making all of our issues freely available on the web, we’re finally joining the conversation in a broader, more accessible way. ” - Andy McMillan

  • New courses weekly (200+ per year)
