Format: Hardcover
I have been interested in labyrinths for the past few years. Most of the books I own have black and white images, if that. This book has BEAUTIFUL full-colored images of mazes and labyrinths from all over the world. The type of labyrinths/mazes that you can find photographed include baskets, cathedral floors, lawns/hedges, paintings, mosaics, pottery, rock formations and more. What makes this book so good, is that not only can you get a great image of these works of art, but you can also try to solve them with the provided erasable marker and clear film overlay. This book even shows you some step-by-step instructions on how to try and learn to draw some labyrinths/mazes on your own. I would highly recommend this book to people of all ages. It is also a great starter book for anyone who likes to collect information on labyrinths. I don't think people will be disappointed with this book when they receive it.

Format: Hardcover
A great book for anyone interested in mazes or puzzles of any kind.Mazes can be found throughout the numerous books on puzzles but also throughout the worlds of art,architecture, history and literature.This book covers a bit of everything from the history that shows mazes appear as far back as 3,600 BC.It's likely that one would find them in any writings , drawings or art in any civilization,religions or structures from the days man first took a tool in his hand.They vary from the simplist to the most complicated and elaborate.Some are as small as a thumbnail while some are acres in size.This book is filled with beautiful photograps of some of the world's most famous mazes as well as drawings of them to solve.The solutions are also included.Another very good feature of the book is that they have come up with a way to 'do' these mazes over and over again. Even if one is not inclined to solve all these maze ;it is still an excellent book to read and enjoy the beauty that has been created in this art form.In addition to the contents of the book, it's physical construction has been well thought out and executed.
A first class book in every way.
