Labyrinths free pdf 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.
