Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The mesmerizing work of Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher has fascinated viewers for more than seventy years. His illustrations constantly play with our perceptions of reality by layering multiple conflicting perspectives. Produced in association with the Escher estate, this book presents some of the artist's most intriguing works in original three-dimensional pop-ups. These marvelous paper constructions allow us to appreciate in new ways the artist's impossible geometry and his themes of infinity and paradox. The book also features quotes from Escher on the original pieces of art as well as reproductions of a number of his other works.

Book News Annotation:

Surely Escher himself would have approved; pop-up is the perfect foil for his mesmerizing 3-dimensional world. The volume is beautifully produced, oversized (12.25x13.25"), and includes a description of each work, quotes by the author and others, and a short biography of the artist.

Synopsis:

Specially created pop-ups explore the marriage of art and mathematics in Escher's popular work.
