This is the most comprehensive look we have ever had of Escher's enigmatic life and his whole range of work. Throughout this superb volume we are shown, with the aid of sketches and diagrams, how the artist arrived at his most provocative creations. Perhaps no other contemporary artist so awakens our sense of wonder at the grand designs to be found in our world - even in the commonplace. To see an Escher print is to discover the infinite possibilities of the human imagination. -- from back cover

"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
