Thread your way through this aMAZEing history and delve into a curious experience!

From prehistoric times, mazes and labyrinths worldwide have served as different symbolic, ritualistic, and practical purposes. Taken as a powerful metaphor for life's journey, they can be used as tools for meditation and learning at any level, even when completed for recreation. Maze images can be enjoyed as motifs themselves, but also in their material forms-a meditation, puzzle, dance, walk, ritual, pilgrimage, or simply a day out.

Drawing upon a wealth of historical and classical literature; accounts written by explorers, archaeologists, and historians; and the output of modern and contemporary world-renowned experts and enthusiasts, social historian Dr. Julie Bounford explores the evolution of mazes through time and across continents, presenting their history in a fun and engaging format while challenging readers to solve over 100 mazes-many created exclusively for this book by illustrator and artist Trevor Bounford. Learn about:The earliest recorded examples, legends, and mazes in the ancient worldMazes used as sacred rituals and symbols that take us beyond the natural worldTurf, stone, hedge, and garden mazes, and sites of communal rustic revelsThe modern revival, with mazes taken to forms never previously imaginedExplore how mazes can improve your mental dexterity and create mindfulness, and use the gazetteer to locate historical, replica, and interesting mazes that exist around the world today.

The Puzzlecraft series from Wellfleet Press tackles some of the greatest conundrums of our time. Learn how to navigate the world's trickiest mazes, solve the most complex crosswords, and finally get the answer to "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" Follow literature's most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, as he guides you through hundreds of challenging cross-fitness brain exercises inspired by his most popular cases and adventures. You can also train your memory to perform better and learn the meanings behind your own personality traits or the traits of others. These handy and portable paperbacks are sized perfectly to travel, whether on vacation or just for your daily commute. The intricately designed covers and bold colors will capture your attention as much as the engaging content inside.
