For forty years, Philip Ashforth Coppola has meticulously documented the New York City subway in a series of extraordinary drawings, meticulously detailing the typography, terra-cotta mosaics, faiences, and tile patterns that millions of riders see every day but have never really seen the way Coppola's drawings show us.

Along with Coppola's intricate ink drawings are anecdotes he assembled through painstaking research, typically involving hundreds of hours poring through microfilms to discover all the names behind the artisanship of what is rightly called New York's largest public art work, its legendary subway system.
