Paris-based architect Jug Cerovic has created a hardbound book, called One Metro World, which contains the maps of metro-systems from all over the world. Co.Exist staffer Charlie Sorrel reports on the book which Cerovic considers to be both functional as well as artistic.
The maps featured in the book, which is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, are free of clutter and have been made simpler to read:
The topology of the network is accurate, but the features of the landscape are simplified. Then, the central section of the maps are magnified and the edges shrunken. This makes the information in the central part—where most travel takes place, and most interconnections occur—easier to read. The simpler outlying sections get by just fine with a little less space.
