Google Image Search API Max Result Size


I'm trying to use the google rest api, as described here,

It looks like 8 results is the max and that just doesn't seem sensible to me.  Am I missing something?  I'm able to append rsz=8 parameter but can't go any higher than 8 or the api returns an error response. Any ideas?

rsz : << This argument supplies an integer from 1–8 indicating the number of results to return per page. >>
start : << This argument supplies the start index of the first search result. Each successful response contains a cursor object (see below) which includes an array of pages. The start property for a page may be used as a valid value for this argument. >>

So I have to hit the API 8 times in order to get 64 images, each time incrementing the start index?  Seems very strange that I can't just get this all in one request.
Google don't want to be down with requests...

And note you're limited between each queries...
