...a beautifully illustrated study of the plans that help passengers navigate the world's metropolitan railway systems... -- The Times, November 1 2003

...a delightful new rainy-day book... -- The Guardian, November 11 2003

...an object lesson in information design.... -- Wallpaper Magazine, June 2004

...like a Conde naste traveller magazine for jetsetters with subterranean tendancies... -- Metro, July 12 2004 --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

From the Publisher

This great new edition is even more comprehensive than the last and includes some recently unearthed rarities plus many new contemporary diagrams from across the globe. An excellent companion to Mr Beck’s Underground Map by Ken Garland which focuses exclusively on the development of the London Underground map. Metro Maps Of The World unashamedly takes Mr Beck's diagram as a standard by which other subway maps can be held up against, whilst celebrating the diversity and ingenuity of designers worldwide. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
