I love it,
This review is from: Metro Maps of the World (World Maps) (Hardcover)
I was given this book as a present last week and have been dipping in to it every day since. It is not just a book of maps - it is a book about maps and the text really brings things together. Although it is worth buying just for the pictures it is actually worth reading as well
I have never really thought about underground maps as maps before - just diagrams, but this book really opened my eyes.
Underground maps are such a synthesis of design functionality and art and this book brings them alive.
I will never look at a London tube map in the same light again.
