    One thought on “Paris Underground: The Maps, Stations, and Design of the Metro”

    1. For anyone who has ever set foot on a metro train in Paris. Lavishly illustrated; a pleasure to simply browse. The level of detailed information does not encourage a sequential reading, of course. The numerous metro maps are especially enjoyable to compare with one another.

    2. in order to accurately assess this book I have to divide it into sections, for accuracy. Here you have, my three reviews of Paris Underground: The Maps, Stations, and Design of the Metro:REVIEW ONE pages 1-77, a short and not entirely asked-for history of the metroo starsMark, listen (may I call you Mark? Or should it be Mr Overden? I'm going for the former, I think) what are you doing? I loved Transit Maps of the World - it turned me into someone who has coffee table books, and is proud of that [...]

    3. Liked 'Transit Maps' better. It's been a while since I read that one, so I cannot say why it made a better impression -- it either had less or better prose.I found the level of detail in 'Paris' inconsistent; some things, like typefaces (which the author consistently calls 'fonts', much to the chagrin of this type geek) were covered in the minutest detail. But the entire WWII period was glossed over in a handful of pages. Clearly the Métro was not a player in the war in the same way that London [...]

    4. I started to read this but the text was pretty boring to me--for "history of the Paris Metro" enthusiasts only. However the photos and maps are pretty interesting and fun to peruse. Many varied and colorful design solutions to the subway map.

    5. A concise history of the highlights in the creation and transformation of the Paris Metro. Very cut-and-dry like a hybrid of a textbook and picture book.

    6. Fascinating and in-depth history of the Paris metro. My only beef with the book is some questionable layout and design decisions which made some image captions confusing.
