Mazes and Labyrinths : In Great Britain, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)

Description

Labyrinths are found in rock, mosaics and turf all over the world, and seem to have been known to magicians from very ancient times.

In the traditional designs no choices are offered to the seekers, the path simply delivering the walker to the centre in a certain way.

But what does it mean? Can you really get lost in a maze? What have gremlins got to do with it all? And the Minotaur? This tiny book of graphic beginnings, endings and lanes in between is a beautiful and thought-provoking guide to this fascinating subject.

An interesting and charming little book - a gentle introduction to mazes and labyrinths and the difference between them.
