For the artist Escher, the skin of the visible world was a piece of cloth that could be cut, folded, shaped, and rearranged in many ways. This title presents many of Esher's greatest works, from the great master prints to numerous previously unpublished drawings, and arranges them to form a cinematic journey of discovery. His preparatory sketches and jottings, which give insights into the working processes of his mind are also included.

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)
