A very interesting book. This explains what a labyrinth is (not the same thing as a maze - a labyrinth has only one possible path and serves different purposes - goes over the history of the creation of labyrinths in several cultures, shows still-extant examples from around the world, gives some instruction in how to make one's own labyrinth, and talks about the various ways people have thought about and used them. Along with the interesting text, the pictures are gorgeous.
