Subway maps, the product of months of research and design, can distort reality to make geographic space simpler and easier to understand at a glance. Designer, economics student, and self-described geography and data nerd Alexandr Sasha Trubetskoy applies this modern concept to the ancient roads that connected Rome at the height of its empire, when it stretched from the British Isles to North Africa into the Middle East.
