The Return of Massimo Vignelli
Massimo Vignelli’s 1972 map of the New York subway system, which introduced a Beck-style diagrammatic transit map to the city (and which New Yorkers were not prepared for; the map was controversial and encountered opposition before it was replaced in 1979), is back. Kind of. In an exclusive with Men’s Vogue, Vignelli and his design team have updated the map to reflect 30 years of changes and are selling a limited 500-print run for $299, with proceeds benefiting Green Worker Cooperatives.
