Synopsis

The Magic of M. C. Escher by J. L. Locher, W. F. Veldhuysen

As beautiful and rigorous as an Escher work itself, this book is the classic study of a great maverick who so memorably linked the world of imagemaking with geometry and paradox. Escher's works, from the great master prints to numerous drawings, are brilliantly arranged to form a cinematic journey of discovery that reveals the magical world of the artist's mind, an uncharted realm lush with exotic conceptions and inventions.

About the Author

J. L. Locher, Director of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, was a close friend of Escher's. W. F. Veldhuysen is Chairman of the M. C. Escher Foundation in the Netherlands.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
