    I wish the editors of this book had put some thought into its contents. It's really pages of excellent graphic illustrations by Emiliano Ponzi that sort of reveal the problems designer Vignelli faced when designing the 1970 subway map. The story through the pages will take you only a few minutes to read.

    My idea for the book would include a copy of the map, in a pocket inside the back cover, that could be removed and unfolded (it actually looks good enough to frame if you are a designer) the map is reproduced on page thirty two and too small to read any of the words, far better to have turned the book sideways and run the map over the two pages. There could have been some pages with an illustrated essay with detail about the map and how, eventually, the Transit Authority decided the map was too modern (or complex?) for their customers and had an entirely different subway map designed based on geography. Rochester Institute of Technology published 'Vignelli transit maps' in 2012, it's mentioned on page thirty four.

    The book is really an opportunity to enjoy Ponzi's wonderful illustrations with a bit of background about Vignelli's map. Look inside the book at Westread Book Reviews then click 2021 and April.

    Excellent documentary about the development of the signs of the New York subway. Probably only something for typography experts and public transport nerds but very in depth and good to read.

    When you love subways, trains, maps etc. this is the book for you. Extremely bright, slightly autistic little grandson reads at a high level and loves this book. I think anyone who loves anything to do with transportation they will love it too.
