    What can possibly be cooler than a maze? Oh that's right, a maze made of books!

    The Book Depository proudly supports aMAZEme; part of the London 2012 Festival, aMAZEme is a gigantic maze up to 2.5 meters high, built from over 200,000 books! You might even find some from the Book Depository in there...

    Created by Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo, the aMAZEme Project consists of a series of ideas that mix concepts, languages, techniques and multimedia. The audience will unexpectedly come into contact with the installation, helping to stimulate their curiosity, knowledge and creativity. aMAZEme is an art project that unites literature, performance, installation, live cinema, images and the Internet, based on three main concepts:

    Art/Literature + Entertainment + Generosity

    So if you're in London any time from now until August 26, have a stroll by Southbank and discover the maze at The Clore Ballroom, Royal Festival Hall. Time to get lost in books. Literally!
