MISCELLANEOUS BOOKS

This group of books include art books, mazes, novels, and other books that didn't seem to fit into other categories. This is all very arbitrary. I have included Adrian Fisher's The Art of the Maze here, whereas his newest book is in the reference section.

Secrets of the Maze: An Interactive Guide to the World's Most Amazing Mazes, by Adrian Fisher and Howard Loxton
Website: www.mazemaker.com

The Art of the Maze, by Adrian Fisher and Georg Gerster
Adrian Fisher is the world's foremost maze maker. To the British, everything is a maze, even if it is unicursal. The author is mostly involved with multi-cursal designs.

Doolhoven & Labyrinten in Nederland
There was no foreign language section for Dutch, so this book is here. There is a lot of labyrinth activity in the Netherlands. This book shows both labyriths and mazes in that country. There is a three-page summary in English, in the back.

The Path Through the Labyrinth, by Marian Green
This isn't about labyrinths. It's about how to find one's way through the Western esoteric tradition. Like many books, "labyrinth" is only in the title, or perhaps referred to once or twice. A search at any library will turn up hundreds of books that use labyrinthine as an adjective for complexity and confusion.

Leading from the Maze: A Personal Pathway to Leadership, by Jeffrey Patnaude
If labyrinths are a metaphor for life, why not also for business? It's used in that way, despite some egregious gaps in their knowledge about labyrinths. The point of the book is good:-- leadership isn't about doing clever things, it's about who you are as a real person.

Magical Labyrinths: Journeys Through Space and Time, by Bertrun jeitner-Hartmann and Thomas Thiemeyer
This is pure art, with labyrinths and mazes drawn from the imagination in glorious full color. I'm not sure why the world needs this book, including one design on a take-out poster. There are a few stange things about the text, which is minimal. Maybe that's part of the mystery. Its advanced graphics are a treat for the artist.

The Hero and the Minotaur: The Fantastic Adventures of Theseus, by Robery Byrd.
This is a childrens book telling the story of Theseus. The drawings are just wonderful.

The Labyrinth of the World and the Paradise of the Heart, by John Amos Comenius
Neither is this book about labyrinths. It was written in the 17th century using the labyrinth as an allegory. This was one of the seminal books in the origination of the Rosicrucian Order. I believe that Father Rapp, who built the original hedge maze in New Harmony, Indiana, in 1814, knew this book and was influenced by it.

Maze? Labyrinth? The Truth? by Graham Burgess
This British maze and labyrinth designer gives a rather erudite arguement that maze is the proper term for unicursal designs and labyrinth for multicursal ones.

Larry's Party, by Carol Shields
This is a novel by an award-winning Canadian author. The protagonist becomes a maze maker. The author died last year of cancer. Her memorial is going to be a labyrinth.

Labirintie Dintorni, by Toni Pecoraro
Black and white drawings and engravings, very coplex, with some labyrinth-like figures included. In Italian.

Walking the Labyrinth: A Very Odd Book of Transition and Transformation, by Dean Montalbano
This book claims it isn't about labyrinths, it is itself a labyrinth. And so it is. I got lost. It is a part of some larger program about hypnosis and open minds. Try: www.HypnoDean.com Aparently there is a DVD that goes with this book.
