Acclaim for Helvetica and the New York City Subway System
Not only has Helvetica and the New York City Subway System been selected for the AIGA 50 Books competition but is has been declared one of the Best Books of 2011 by the writers and editors of Slate. It is one of only 17 books chosen and shares that honor with such lumimaries as Vladimir Nabokov, David Foster Wallace and Tina Fey (author of Bossypants). It is number seven in the queue, but since the books are not ranked that may mean nothing.
The design review website typetoken has also championed Helvetica and the New York City Subway System with a visual review. The site itself is both beautiful and useful, putting the book in good company.
