graphic monday...

At this very moment I am working on my thesis (blah) but luckily I really love the topic. It's all about topological maps and such. I would go into detail but it would probably bore you all senseless. So to, em, celebrate my thesis (cough) I thought I would dedicate Graphic Monday to it this week. 

This map is at the centre of my thesis work. It is the NY subway map designed by Massimo Vignelli back in 1972. Sadly, it did not do well as was discontinued a few years later. 

Isn't it the most beautiful map you have ever seen?

I want one, framed no less.
