Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » There is no mistaking Escher's distinctive and provocative picture puzzle-style designs in which mathematics, perspective and logic all play their part. This important study brings together hundreds of his works, including drawings, lithographs and woodcuts, beautifully reproduced and including some magnificent foldouts. Escher's range is astonishing, from the familiar symmetrical patterns to some lovely, intimate portraits and beautifully textured landscapes. The images are accompanied by powerful and illuminating quotations from the artist's letters and other writings. (Kirkus UK)
