Over the last decade, mazes have been making the newspaper headlines and there has been a worldwide explosion in their construction. Not only in the form of the tradtional turf mazes of medieval times and hedge mazes such as the one at Hampton Court but modern mazes made in a variety of new materials including bricks, mirrors and water jets. Even enormous maize mazes which are cut out of fields of growing corn and which last for a single summer season. This book traces the history of the maze in all its forms and uses a mixture of photographs and drawings to offer a fascinating insight into them.

Robert Field has travelled extensively and has taken his camera and a keen eye with him wherever he has gone. He is also author of a series of Geometric Patterns books that will appeal both to those who have a particular interest in the topic covered but also to those who are looking for a rich resource of pattern designs.
