Labyrinths are found all over the world, in nearly every culture—perhaps because we ourselves are made of them, right down to our fingerprints, speculates Henry Eliot. Mazes, on the other hand, with their dead ends and multiple passages, are a newer innovation, and what Eliot gives us here is not so much a history as a cultural perspective of mazes and labyrinths. You will find yourself turning and twisting the book as the text reads sideways and even upside-down, following an unpredictable thread from Daedalus and the Minotaur to mazes fictional, actual, and metaphorical, illustrated throughout with continuous line drawings by French artist Quibe.
