I have a personal love for travel books and maps, especially National Park maps and outdated travel guides- so this great gift is a combo of both!
Here's the description:
Transit Maps of the World is the first and only comprehensive collection of historic and current maps of every rapid-transit system on earth. Using glorious, colorful graphics, Mark Ovenden traces the history of mass transit-including rare and historic maps, diagrams, and photographs, some available for the first time since their original publication. Transit Maps is the graphic designerâ€™s new bible, the transport enthusiastâ€™s dream collection, and a coffee-table essential for everyone whoâ€™s ever traveled in a city.
