    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...

    This book spoke to me so hard in college back in the 70s. But I gave it away after a while. Saw the Escher touring show last year(?) I think and bought a new copy! I still love MCE's combining of the hallucinogenic and the precise. ...

    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...

    Dutch artist M. C. Escher crafted dense, complicated structures at once beautiful and playful, exploring the limits of perception and the relationships between figures and space, mostly with woodcuts and lithographs. This book consists of key works from these investigations, animals...
