This book invites you to experience two dozen of the most varied and remarkable mazes, painstakingly drawn by hand―visions of a dazzling black-and-white world in which the austere beauty of geometry is infused with the warmth of imagination. They offer hours of mindful exploration for puzzlers of all ages. Art lovers will enjoy just looking at them, and catching their subtle historical echoes.
Clear instructions help you start your journey through each maze. At the back of the book you will find not only solutions but also an illustrated guide to drawing your own mazes.
24 Mazes reflects the author’s belief that a good maze is both a picture and a puzzle, a work of art that you travel through. A maze can offer different sensations of physical movement, as well as an emotional journey―through hope and disappointment, insight and confusion, to an ultimate triumph. It is one of the great hybrid art forms, like opera or a comic strip.
