The Art of the Maze (George Weidenfeld and Nicolson Ltd, 1990) by Adrian Fisher and Georg Gerster is a fascinating, richly illustrated book about both historical and modern mazes and their design principles.
Mazes attract like a magnet and fascinate all who come into contact with them. But what is a maze and what is the secret of its enduring appeal? The Art of Maze explores the origins and evolution of this extraordinary art form, which can be found in the history and mythology of some of the world’s most advanced and most ancient civilizations. Examples of mazes, in many tantalizing forms and form all over the world, are discussed and illustrated as the reader is guided through a labyrinth of ideas and puzzles.
