Format: Paperback
I had an earlier re-printing of this collection (which first appeared in the 'fifties) that got damaged, so I was pleased recently to get a copy of this latest edition. It has over seventy one-a-page reproductions of Escher's best-known prints, selected by him, with his brief but very useful comments on each. The quality of the reproductions is very good, with crisp linework, solid blacks, and dense, rich tonal areas. About 15 prints are reproduced in colour. Really exceptional value at the price. As the text is so short I recommend Bruno Ernst's "The Magic Mirror of M. C. Escher", which explains in detail how the images were created, as a companion volume. Together they are really all the Escher fan needs.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recently bought a number of M.C.Escher books and this is the best. It's a decent size book with around 70-80% of just his drawings. Each drawing has its own page making it uncluttered and clear to view- they are also crisp and sharp showing good print quality . The beginning of the book has a paragraph or so devoted to each drawing describing what is going on. Great if you just want to look and maybe even try drawing them yourself. Very good value.

Format: Paperback
This collection of Eschers works is truly brilliant. It contains 75 prints in high resolution. At the beginning of the book, there are short but very useful descriptions of the images, describing the principles behind the picture, and explaining the strangeness in them.

I am not going to comment the art now - other than saying that it is brilliant - because art is ofcourse very subjective, but these are pictures that you can really look at, and just be amazed not only by the sheer concepts that I doubt many could produce from blank, but also the quality in whichthe concepts are decipted.

Worthy buy.

Format: Paperback
Whereas the work of most artists will only interest some, I think no one, from children upward, could fail to be amazed by Escher's graphic art: mosaics of living images, metamorphoses of one form to another and weird takes on perspective in a rather spooky and surreal world.This book contains 76 b/w images, preceded by an introduction by the artist, and a description of each reproduction. Truly brilliant and imaginative
