Others from those books on optical illusions.
Adventures with Impossible Figures by Bruno Ernst is a wonderful book that explains with the help of numerous diagrams how those wonder 'impossible' drawings, diagrams an paintings are created.
In fact one of the greatest illusions is the author of the book for Bruno Ernst is the pen name of J.A.F. de Rijk from the Netherlands.
Ernst met the master, M C Escher in 1956 and was deeply impressed.
Later he wrote about several of M C 's work.
Indeed if you are fortunate to live in the Netherlands there are several murals of Escher's work on public buildings.
This book is that wonderful mix of being entertaining and informative.
Anyone who loves mathematical art will enjoy this great book.
