Although this book has some interestingphotos, the instructions for how to draw labyrinths are very poor. There is a glaring mistake on Page 80 where diagrams 5 and 6 contain an error which leads to a labyrinth that does not work. Fortunately I was able to find a correct drawing of the Chartres Labyrinth and this enabled me to complete the project. Really a book like this ought to have been checked more carefully to see that the instructions were correct.
I am disappointed that this book did not live up to my expectations.

I am already interested in labyrinths so this is a great addition to my collection, but would also be good for general interest as it has great ideas for places to visit and good photos and illustrations.

Beautiful pictures and creative labyrinths 14 Jan. 2009
By A. R. Barrett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have a collection of labyrinth books and I liked this one because it was very different. It, like many others, tells about the history and cultural connections of labyrinths and has gorgeous photographs. But this book is different in that it gives instructions on how to make labyrinths out of all kinds of materials--from finger labyrinths on paper and using mosaic tiles to very large community labyrinths including some built in three dimensions. I have used this book and will continue to do so.

Creative outdoor labyrinths 26 Jun. 2007
By J. Bevilacqua - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you like labyrinths, or garden arts or are drawn to meditative natural spaces, this will be a stimulating and spiritually uplifting read! You don't have to know a lot about labyrinths or their construction to discover their fascination in these pages. Wonderful, practical ideas: from simple materials to more challenging projects...temporary or permanent. Your imagination is the limit.

Wonderful 22 Jun. 2008
By Inez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have post it notes sticking out from the pages in at least 20 spots. There are numerous creative ways of making and experiencing labyrinths, most of which are affordable and require little space. The pictures are fantastic. I have used their ideas and created some labyrinths for myself. It is a great resource for anyone wanting to diversify or educate people on the many uses and experiences possible involving labyrinths.

Eye candy and much more 29 Mar. 2010
By Sharyn Woerz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jim Buchanan's book Labyrinths For The Spirit is a pictorial book showing labyrinths using everything from sand to chalk to plastic forks for temporary settings to the big guns requiring professional plans and serious heavy equipment for laying out. Mr. Buchanan is a landscape architect and has designed and built a number of labyrinths and that specialized viewpoint is shown to advantage in the many full color images of labyrinths. I also enjoyed his idea of taking a city map, mark out a labyrinth on it and then walk it. I got my money's worth in this book, what more could I ask?
