Kickstarter Campaign Wants to Document NYC Subway Map History Over 3 Richly Illustrated Books

Freelance writer and transit historian Peter B. Lloyd of Transit Map History has an interesting Kickstarter campaign which seeks crowdfunding for a series of books documenting the history of the New York City subway map over three fully researched and richly illustrated books.

Millions of people see the subway map on the platforms and entrances of stations, or on folded pocket sheets, or in smartphone apps. Who stops and wonders, "Who did this?" or "Why does the map look like this?" ... This series of books answers those questions.

The campaign has a modest goal of $23k, but has quite a way to go in the final stretch. Backers can get anything from postcards to posters, books and signed copies.
