Transit Maps of the World is subtitled The World’s First Collection of Every Urban Train Map on Earth, which is pretty self-explanatory. Ever wanted to compare the labyrinthine twists and turns of the London Underground with those of the New York City Subway? Or take a peek at what’s involved in tooling around Tokyo? The book contains maps from dozens of cities, accompanied by facts, figures and historical anecdotes. Engrossing and entertaining for both idle leafing and hard-core travel research.
