    Like most high school and college students, I went through an Escher phase. Without the aid of psychotropic substances or any sort of interest in vaguely mathematical patterns, mind you, so it didn't last long, but still, it happened, and this was the book I bought as it was going on. ...

    This book contains art along with comments from the artist explaining what he was trying to accomplish and where he felt he did well and not so well. His words add a lot to the appreciation of the well known images. It's a fun book that would be great to get again to study and try recr...

    The album is overall good - high-quality print and it includes quotes from Escher himself. What I didn't like was how the text and images are distributed throughout the album. All descriptions are in one place (at the beginning of the album), and all the images are shoved after that. I...

    Een mooi boek over Escher's werken. Ik heb eigenlijk niet echt de beschrijvingen gelezen die voor in het boek stonden, ik kwam voor de tekeningen. :P En die stelden zeker niet teleur. Er waren er zelfs een paar die ik nog niet kende, of die niet meteen een Oh, die, momentje aanwakkerde...

    Un paio di anni fa li vidi dal vero, a una mostra a Roma, gli originali di Escher. Già nelle sue prime illustrazioni, realistiche, si intuisce qualcosa di come evolverà il suo stile e delle meraviglie che creerà. Per me resta uno dei migliori del XX secolo, meglio di artisti sopr...

    I've always adored the works of M.C. Escher. This is a small, yet stunning collection which included many of my faves. His talent was unsurpassed & most impressive. Only thing that could've made it better would've been the size of the book. It was smaller than I expected, which is ...

    This is a great was to explore this artist's work, especially since here the introduction and the picture explanation are done by him (written before his death in 1972). In the introduciton he talks, among other things, of how he creates the works, his wood-preferences, and the develop...
