The 52nd edition is now available and contains a study of seven newly discovered stone labyrinths in western central India, in the same region as the four that were previously reported in Caerdroia 50; a charming illustrated page in a Danish magazine from the 1930s; the reason that early rat mazes were based on the Hampton Court maze design; an unusual labyrinth from northern Finland; a garden maze and several mirror mazes that were formerly in Stockholm, Sweden; the true location of an otherwise unidentified garden maze from Germany; the origin and design of the labyrinth on the façade of the Basilica de la Sagrada Família in Barcelona, Spain; the story of the 99 labyrinths designed by the Swedish artist Oscar Reutersvärd and the search for a turf labyrinth in Romania. Our Notes & Queries section rounds up labyrinths made of Lego, inlaid in the lid of an old writing box, painted on wooden chests and a report on a major labyrinth related exhibition in Oxford – as always, a packed and diverse edition. We also bring sad news of the death of Bo Stjernström, one of the pioneers of modern labyrinth research in Scandinavia.
