Labyrinths


In his first book in ten years, Franco Maria Ricci presents a rich and refined collection of photographs celebrating the art and mystery of mazes throughout the ages. Franco Maria Ricci – publisher, art collector, bibliophile, garden designer, visionary – presents this collection of beautiful, haunting photographs chronicling his latest project: a massive bamboo labyrinth near Fontanellato, Italy, scheduled to open in 2014. Beginning with the Minotaur, labyrinths have transfixed and enchanted us. This book explores labyrinths in every form – drawn graffiti-like on crockery, stamped on coins, traced in manuscript illuminations, carved on cathedral walls, and planted in gardens – and features literary quotations from Herodotus and Pliny to Jorge Luis Borges.
