A love letter to NYC and to Graphic Design: The Great New York Subway Map

While London boasts the world’s oldest underground train network (opened in 1863) and Boston built the first subway in the United States in 1897, the New York City subway is the largest American system, and the first rapid transit system in the world running 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 
No matter how crowded or dirty, the subway is one New York City institution for New Yorkers and tourists alike.
On the afternoon of October 27, 1904, New York City Mayor George McClellan took the controls on the inaugural run of the first line of the subway, the city’s innovative new rapid transit system which is now one of the busiest public transportation systems in the world, serving nearly 6 million passengers every day.
But how do you make a map that helps all of them get where they are going? In the Great New York Subway Map published in association with the New York Transit Museumaward-winning Italian illustrator Emiliano Ponzi tells the fascinating story of how the great Italian designer Massimo Vignelli created the NYC subway map, overcoming the difficulty of turning a lot of information into an easy-to-use map for everyone. Therefore, the book introduces young readers to the idea of graphic design as a way to communicate effectively and elegantly, solving problems, and to create objects that shape our world.
The book includes images of the original map, now in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, alongside other examples of Vignelli's work.
