Even if you don’t have a fascination with subway maps, especially the New York subway map, these two versions by Brooklyn, NY-based Triboro are a sight to behold. Literally, because your eyes might just pop out of your sockets and you will need to hold them in as they try to handle the totally wrong color combinations of RGB and CMY. Oh my. The posters are extra large, coming in at 45 by 58 inches, and judging, from the pictures, the insane amount of ink needed has been laid out smoothly, consistently, and beautifully from inch one to inch fifty-eight. If you have $180 to spare you can treat yo self to one of these beauties from the Triboro shop
