One Metro World is a book about metro maps. My metro maps.
During the last 5 years i have designed 40 metro maps for 40 cities around the world using a common graphic language.
I wanted to gather all these maps in one place to show how the same transport system can produce an incredible diversity of network shapes.
The common language used throughout the maps enables you to navigate unknown networks as confidently as the one you are familiar with and also lets you mentally explore them and wander.
The book is large and elegant, like photography and architecture books, 23,5 x 31 cm in size with hard cover and 160 pages printed on high quality kunstdruck matte paper.
All maps come with an original story about the city and the metro network with some schematics explaining its most remarkable features.
There are also additional commented schematics for 15 of the maps, highlighting network peculiarities as well as map design choices.
These are all 40 cities featured in the book:
