This is an auction for THE ART OF THE MAZE by Adrian Fisher & Georg Gerster.

Amazon.com reviews:

"FIVE STARS!!! As an architect interested in the design and construction of labyrinths, I have found this to be the most substantial of the resources available. This book deals with design history and theory and gives many expamples of labyrinths and their cousins, puzzle mazes. It explains the differences and the varieties in a compelling way and makes any reader want to run out and start building one."

"FIVE STARS!!!! This is the best maze book in years. I've been fascinated by mazes and labyrinths for many years and have built up a shelf-full of books on the subject. I snatched up The Art of the Maze as soon as I saw it on the display table of a local bookstore and now regard it as the best book in my collection. It's the result of a happy marriage between two unusual authors: Adrian Fisher, probably the leading authority and builder of mazes working today, and Georg Gerster, the world's best aerial photographer. The photographs of mazes are spectacular but what I most appreciate is the consistently elegant design and layout of the book. It's replete with handsome diagrams and drawings which brilliantly illustrate the principles of maze design. The text is also superb: thoughtful and truly interesting. Mr Fisher provides deep and sometimes quirky insights into the history and aesthetics of mazes without ever becoming pedantic. His survey ranges from the mazes of antiquity to the latest innovations from around the world."
