The fantastic world of M.C. Escher by Michele Emmer( Visual )

2 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this overview of the life and work of M.C. Escher, examples of his incredibly detailed prints are shown and analyzed with particular attention to his use of symmetry and geometrical figures. Patterns in the Italian countryside and mosaic tiles from Spain were two major influences in the printmaker's work, as was the work of mathematicians specializing in "impossible objects" which could be drawn, but not created in three dimensional space. Escher incorporated all of these elements to create a fantastic world described as an encounter between imagination and the culture of mathematics and science
