The Magic of M.C Escher

$43.00

M.C. Escher (1898-1972) is renowned for his ability to render the visions of his mind's eye. The visions themselves were remarkable: for Escher, the skin of the visible world was nothing more than a piece of cloth that could be cut, folded, shaped, and rearranged in marvelous ways.

A superb draftsman, he portrayed these other-worldly transformations of space within the familiar borders of a sheet of paper. The resulting images have become the favorite artworks of viewers around the world.

The Magic of M.C. Escher does justice to this original artist's inventions. Escher's works-woodcuts, lithographs, and drawings, accompanied by quotes from the author-are brilliantly arranged to form a cinematic look at his achievements. Here is the magical world of the artist's mind, an uncharted realm full of exotic conceptions and inventions.
