"This intriguing book takes an in-depth look at mazes from all over the world." - Alan Titchmarsh

"Prepare to get lost in the world of labyrinth and maze-making in this attractively packaged book that looks at the history of mazes." - Gardens Illustrated

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 continues to intrigue us?

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

Specially commissioned illustrations by Thibaud Herem represent 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.
