Index Diversion 5: Tokyo Metro Strip Maps

Index is done. Now working on the legend. Current ETA is the end of this month, hopefully…

This was the original idea for how I’d do the legend for the Tokyo map, because the through-service patterns in this city are ridiculously complicated and I figured representing them graphically would make more sense…whereupon I discovered I didn’t have enough empty space in the map for it. (Or: after many months of cursing the map for being too big, I am now cursing the map for not being big enough.)

Still liked the idea, though, so I thought I’d do all the ones for the Tokyo subway (and Rinkai Line) and post them here, as a wee glimpse of what might have been. Ah well.
