"Maurits Cornelis Escher was a truly unique artist whose vision was quite unlike anyone else's. To enter his world is to set foot into unknown and unsettling territory. His extraordinary pictures of logic and perspective fool the brain into believing the impossible- that staircases can climb forever, that fish can morph into birds, and that water can run uphill."--Jacket

M.C. Escher's letters to Canada, 1958-1972 by Cyndie Campbell( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) is one of the world's most admired modern artists and his engravings and lithographs immediately recognizable for their architectural explorations of infinity. From 1958 until his death in 1972, the Dutch artist wrote letters to his son George who had immigrated to Canada. The correspondence reproduced here - originally written in Dutch and translated into English - discusses Escher's work, including current projects, collaborative books on his art, the sale of his prints, and the production of various films on his life. The letters also make reference to the artist's health, his family and friends, his personal reading, current events and the celebrities, political officials and academics who came into contact with Escher over the course of his career notably F.D. Roosevelt, Stanley Kubrick and Dr. Arthur L. Loeb. Accompanying the letters are an introduction by George Escher, a selection of family photographs, and several full page colour plates of Escher's work

Renowned artist M.C. Escher is not a surrealist drawing us into his dream world, but an architect of perfectly impossible worlds who presents the structurally unthinkable as though it were a law of nature. Weird, beautiful, finely detailed illusions. -- Publisher's description
