Winding your way through a maze or a labyrinth: two symbolic journeys, both rooted in myth and mystery. After looking at the legends and evolution of the two kinds of complex, twisting paths, Jeff Saward considers how today’s land artists and garden designers have recreated labyrinths and the new “craze” for mazes—from maize mazes and mirror mazes to wood and water mazes and simple garden turf mazes. This overview captures their visual excitement, power to challenge, and unique inspiration.

Blackwell North Amer
An in-depth exploration of the world's most remarkable mazes and labyrinths - ancient and modern symbols that link mythology with New Age beliefs, symbolism with art, and sacred sites with leisure areas, working farms, and gardens.
Stunning photographs, together with paintings and prints, show the diversity and complexity of mazes and labyrinths, and provide inspiration and practical ideas for gardeners, artists, and anyone interested in meditation and spirituality.
