Transit Maps of the World was recently published by Penguin Books and is, as the title suggests, a comprehensive collection of maps of transit systems from around the world. The book, by Mark Ovedon, runs the gamut of transit cartography to bring the reader an amazing view of how transit lines are presented in different countries. Each map is accompanied by annotation providing a brief history on the transit system. The book provides not only maps of current transit systems but also digs into the past to show older transit lines and looks forward with conceptual maps of future lines.
