Magical Paths: Labyrinths & Mazes in the 21st Century

Labyrinths & Mazes in the 21st Century | Wind your way through a maze or a labyrinth: two symbolic journeys, both rooted in myth and mystery. But while labyrinths are flat, circulate pathways designed for the acquisition of inner peace, mazes feature patterns of barriers that challenge, confuse, and deceive the walker.

After looking at the legends and evolution of these two kinds of complex, twisting paths, Jeff Saward considers the innovative ways 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. The diverse and stunning examples come from all around the world, and this breathtakingly photographed overview captures their visual excitement and unique inspiration.
