Mazes have been a part of civilization for at least 4,000 years, and tap into many subconscious notions—the game, the quest, the spiritual journey—which may explain the enduring appeal of these real-life yet otherworldly puzzles. This beautifully illustrated book functions as a guide to mazes and labyrinths, a directory to notable examples, and a puzzle book. Along with brief profiles, drawings by Thibaud Hérem represent 60 real and imagined mazes around the world, with a bird's eye view that lets readers make their own journey.
