Tokens & Icons NY MTA Vignelli Map Cufflinks
Usually ships in 24 hours

Product Description

Among Massimo Vignelli's contributions to the world of design are the logos for IBM and American Airlines, and this famous rendering of the New York City subway system.

The map was loathed by the commuters who had to navigate New York using its ascetic, modern, and not-to-scale design during its official usage between 1972 and 1979. (Above you see the map defaced, and channeling the terror of 70s thriller "The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3.") But time has healed wounds, and the graphic design has earned "classic" status in the years since its service. The design is so iconic that in 2011 the New York MTA has started to use a Massimo Vignelli-style digital map called "The Weekender" to explain weekend service interruptions.

Tokens & Icons take memorabilia to a whole new level. Their authentic products are usable and wearable pieces of history. Items include handsome packaging and certificates of authenticity. Some are even hand-signed and numbered. If you're looking for gift that is personal and memorable, look no further!
