Transit Maps of the World is the first and only comprehensive collection of historic and current maps of every urban train system on earth. Celebrating the diversity of way-finding across the planet, Mark Ovenden traces the history of mass transit, including rare maps and diagrams, some barely seen since their original publication. Transit Maps of the World is the graphic designer's handbook, the transport enthusiast's dream collection, and a coffee-table essential for anyone who has ever navigated a city. 'Delightful.' Guardian 'Ovenden does what no other design history book has ever done. Transit Maps of the World is a must-have.' The New York Times Book Review 'A vibrant tip of the hat to the world's urban train systems.' National Geographic Intelligent Traveller 'Like a Conde Nast Traveller magazine for jet setters with subterranean tendencies.' Metro
