Whether you use it for your morning commute or once spent 24 hours trying to get from Times Square to Bushwick, almost everyone's had some type of experience riding the New York City subway.
Nowadays, it's (relatively) easy to find your way from point A to point B using guidebooks, screenshots from Google Maps, and the occasional kindness of strangers. Before the Internet, GPS, and *gasp!* iPhones, all you had at your disposal were the subway signs in front of you. This full-size reissue of the NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual celebrates this era and takes you back to 1970, when subway font went through a major overhaul and became standardized.
