Publisher Comments:

Imaginary worlds, impossible stairways, paradoxical hallways, enigmatic patterns, and mind-boggling graphics are the trademarks of M.C. Escher's artwork. His two-dimensional drawings bring to life a fourth dimension where the surfaces of things come together like a Mobius strip. The profoundly original work of Escher has inspired countless artists, designers, and filmmakers and can be considered a genre in itself. This guide provides a mind-bending introduction to the great master's work.

Synopsis:

Die Pocketausgabe bietet einen kurzen, aber umfassenden Überblick über die surreale Welt des grandiosen Zeichners M.C. Escher. Seine unmöglichen, sich ins Nichts windenden Treppen, die rätselhaften Muster und paradoxen Gänge seiner unzähligen, irrealen und komplexen Fantasien-Gebäude kennt inzwischen fast jeder. Leitmotiv seiner Kunst ist die visuelle Darstellung der Unendlichkeit.
