Commuting from A to B on a major city’s underground system is regularly fraught with perspiration, pushing and panic attacks.

Thankfully, the A and B found in the latest work of French artist Pauline Detavernier, mixing parts of subway lines found in Paris, London and Moscow with Latin and Cyrillic alphabets, offers an altogether less troublesome journey entirely.

Not since The Jackson 5 have the letters A, B and C been so cool.
