Transit Maps of the World
by possibly noteworthy at 10:53 am EST, Feb 24, 2008

Transit Maps of the World is the first and only comprehensive collection of historic and current maps of every rapid-transit system on earth. Using glorious, colorful graphics, Mark Ovenden traces the history of mass transit-including rare and historic maps, diagrams, and photographs, some available for the first time since their original publication. Transit Maps is the graphic designer’s new bible, the transport enthusiast’s dream collection, and a coffee-table essential for everyone who’s ever traveled in a city.

Sample the praise:

Must-have ... must-read ... impossibly nerdy and thoroughly compelling ... delightful ... fabulous ... fascinating ... fantastic ... perfect ... pure catnip ... the stuff that dreams are made of ... sheer public transit/map porn! An object lesson in information design.

Author Mark Ovenden blogged about the book in December.
