The Great New York Subway Map

Italian illustrator and author Emilliano Ponzi has released a marvelous book in collaboration with the MoMA in New York City introducing young readers to the work of iconic graphic designer Massimo Vignelli. Using illustrations of trains, subway stations, advertisements and the NYC skyline, Emiliano’s book tells the story of how Vignelli created an “easy-to-navigate subway map in 1972”. The Great New York Subway Map aims to show how graphic design can be used for “problem-solving” and turning “chaos to order”.
