“A pioneering book written by a knowledgeable and visionary man. Sig Lonegren responded to the deep intuitive nature of labyrinths long before The Labyrinth Movement was established. Clear, concise, fascinating; this book is a primer to learning about the Classical labyrinths and other labyrinths as well.”
