Transit Maps of the World is the first and only comprehensive collection of historic and current maps of every urban train system on earth. Using glorious, colourful graphics, Mark Ovenden traces the history of mass transit, including rare maps, diagrams, and photographs, some barely seen since their original publication. Transit Maps is the graphic designer's new bible, the transport enthusiast's dream collection, and a coffee-table essential for everyone who has ever navigated a city.
