The Maze

A Labyrinthine Compendium

Angus Hyland and Kendra Wilson, Illustrated by Thibaud Hérem


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 Hérem 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.
