The Maze: A Labyrinthine Compendium


Mazes have been a part of civilization for at least 4,000 years, and there are more being built now than ever before. What is it about these magical life-size puzzles that continue to intrigue us? 

The idea of the maze taps into so many subconscious notions: the game, the quest, the spiritual journey. Perhaps this is the key to their enduring appeal.

This richly illustrated volume will delight lovers of mazes, acting as a guide, directory, and puzzle book combined.

Specially commissioned illustrations by French artist Thibaud Hérem depict 60 real and imagined mazes from around the world, with a bird's eye view of each maze so that readers can make their own journey.

Each maze is also accompanied by a fascinating and witty short history.
