Transit Maps Meet Book Covers

Green Metropolis designed by Gray318
Underground designed by John Gall and Jamie Keenan


I'm a chump for transit map-related designs. I know there are tons more. Do you have a favorite? Send it in (thebookdesignreview@yahoo.com) or leave a URL in the comments and I'll post it.

Mapping the Mind by Rita Carter, hardcover edition

Zoom in to see the "stations," named after regions of the brain. I bought this almost entirely on the strength of the cover. Still one of my favorites. I don't know who the designer was.

Oh, I really like the first one. It's almost too clever.

Anastasia: yeah, I'm digging it too.

I think Mr. Green Metropolis is by Mr. Gray. Jonathan Gray.

Not book covers, but if you've got transit maps on the brain you might get a kick out of these:
