Whenever there is a Laurence King book available as a reading copy I jump at it, as their products are always beautiful and so readable, and this was no exception.
I’ve always been fascinated by mazes and labyrinth from the moment I read the Theseus and the Minotaur story and would insist on visiting one whenever we had the opportunity (and still do).
This collection, beautifully illustrated by Thibaud Hérem and written and researched by Angus Hyland and Kendra Wilson, fascinated me from the moment I opened the book.
Each maze has a sketch of its outline and given its dimensions, then there are some other drawings throughout the book to support the text of structures in or near the maze.
The text hands out lovely bits of information about the maze and those who designed or commissioned it, plus the history of the types of maze there are and which one this is.
Another lovely book for my shelves and I’m looking forward to another great book from Laurence King soon.
