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. More Tessellating Mazes and the very similar Tantalizing Tessellating Mazes are two of several maze books that have come from that renewed enthusiasm.

Authored by Robert Schenk

All 70 mazes in More Tessellating Mazes are made from tessellations, shapes that can be arranged to fill the plane without gaps or overlaps. Most of the tessellation shapes are Escher-like, that is, they resemble real-world objects such as birds and other animals, people, tools, and machines. A few resemble symbols such as arrows, and a few are abstract shapes that form intriguing patterns. This book is a sequel to Tantalizing Tessellating Mazes (2012) and has the same format as that book, but introduces new tessellation patterns. The mazes are fairly easy and should appeal to pre-teenages. Solutions are included.
