Non-uniqueness of measures of maximal entropy for subshifts of finite type

It is known that in one dimension an irreducible subshift of finite type has a unique measure of maximal entropy, the so-called Parry measure. Here we give a counterexample to this in higher dimensions. For this example, we also describe the geometric structure of the measures of maximal entropy and show that there are exactly two extremal measures.
