About the author:
An earlier maze book by Robert Schenk, Amusing Alphabet Mazes, used about twenty tessellation patterns in its 80 mazes. Several months after finishing that book, Schenk began to wonder if a book similar to Amusing Alphabet Mazes could be constructed using only patterns of tessellating letters. Puzzling Typography proves that it could be done.

Puzzling Typography

Mazes with Letter Tessellations

Authored by Robert Schenk

Why the title, Puzzling Typography? Mazes are a form of puzzle, and this is a book of mazes. The mazes are made from letter forms, so typography is also central to the book. Finally, the letter forms tessellate or fit together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, another puzzle association. My earlier maze book that used letter forms as a theme, Amusing Alphabet Mazes, had a great deal of variety in maze shapes, maze types, and level of difficulty. Puzzling Typography is more uniform in all three areas. The mazes are moderately difficult and should provide hours of entertainment (or frustration) for older children and adults. Solutions to all 84 mazes are included. If you enjoy the mazes in this book, you will also enjoy the mazes in Puzzling Typography A Sequel.
