About the author:
Robert Schenk became interested in designing mazes 30 years ago when he wrote a computer game that randomly generated mazes for the short-lived TI-99/4A home computer. Ten years later he combined computer programming with enthusiasm for designing typefaces to develop a unique maze-generation system. That system led to two books, Fascinating Mazes (1994) and Maze Madness (1996), published by Dover Publications. Changes during the past fifteen years in the way books are marketed and published have rekindled his interest in designing maze books. Tantalizing Tessellating Mazes and the very similar More Tessellating Mazes are two results of that renewed enthusiasm.

Tantalizing Tessellating Mazes
 

Authored by Robert Schenk

All of the mazes in Tantalizing Tessellating Mazes are made from tessellations, shapes that can be arranged to fill the plane without gaps or overlaps. Tessellations are not only interesting by themselves but they also make wonderful building blocks for intriguing and challenging mazes. Tantalizing Tessellating Mazes contains 70 mazes, some of which have multiple tessellation patterns. Solutions are included. The mazes in this book are neither very easy nor very hard. They should appeal to children roughly eight- or nine-years old and older and they are visually interesting enough so that even adults may find them entertaining.
