Chicago Transit, Frank Lloyd Wright Style

Last week's post featured some maps from Max Roberts. Another recent project is this map of the Chicago "El" in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright.
The map captures Wright's Arts and Crafts style aesthetic with the use of clean lines and fonts. I do find the font a bit difficult to read, however.
The map's outline and stop symbols were inspired by Wright's stained glass work, as seen clearly on the loop inset.

One final nice detail is the diagrams of each line along the sidebar.
This map, the ones highlighted last week, and lots of other cool designs can be purchased at Roberts' Tube Map Central Site.
