We once worked with a woman who wisely spent the entire year gathering Christmas gifts for her loved ones, so that she could kick back and relax in November and December.
Let’s be like her and grab a few copies of this new book about mazes in preparation for the holiday season.
NPR describes Henry Eliot's Follow This Thread as a printer's worst nightmare.
You’ll read it upside down and backwards, following both the text and illustrations every which way as you learn about mazes and labyrinths.
So, in other words — not your usual coffee-table book or tongue-in-cheek T-shirt declaring one's preference for reading over conversation.
Eliot shares more on the creation of this book and why he — not to mention cultures worldwide, throughout time — finds mazes so fascinating with Ari Shapiro.
Listen to their discussion below or read a transcript of it on NPR’s website.
