1972 NYC Subway Map

Massimo Vignelli explains his 1972 NYC Subway Map, an outtake from the movie Helvetica. In four minutes you can learn almost everything you need to know about design. Almost. Link from Fabrica.

See also Mr. Vignelli’s Map from Design Observer and the map itself. And if you’re passionate about this sort of thing, read Mr. Beck’s Underground Map, which is one of my favourite books.
