Curated by Niko Skourtis, Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth, the New York City Transit Authority Graphics Standards Manual website provides an historical record of all the typographic guidelines for New York's subway signage.

This site is dedicated to serve as an archival record of a first edition NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual designed by Massimo Vignelli of Unimark International. The manual was found in a locker beneath old gym clothes. Roll over the images to magnify. Enjoy.
