Reviews:
  • Zavevidi
If you're an M C Escher fan you'll love this book. To be truthful I avoid reading any of the accompanying text in an art book. It might influence my perception of the work itself and reminds me too much of "Art Appreciation" classes. Don't know if "everything" he ever did is here but what is present is fabulous.
  • Zamo
Although the conditiin was described, I was a bit disappointed. The wear was evident, but the dustcover was there and the spine is strong. I would order from this seller again.
  • Gold as Heart
Extensive coverage of Escher's work with excellent illustrations and details about his life.
  • Original
This is one of those books you have to have, whether for inspiration or just to relax and help you think outside the box. Escher's masterfully drawn plates take you on a tour of a surreal world where nothing is what it seems and mathematical perfection is the guide.
  • elegant stranger
Most of Escher's graphic work at a fair price-get one before it goes up! If you're a fan, no cheaper way to have his works around you.

This book is essentially a printing of 184 of M.C. Escher's most well known pieces, combined with a 16 pg scholarly overview by J. L. Lochner.

I've always been a fan of Escher's art (as is true of many people with a somewhat scientific bent) - I enjoy the way he plays with the perceptions of the viewer ... with conflicting nuances of perspective, texture, color, outline, light, shadow, as well as with his studies of how to use the finite to evoke the infinite. In any case, this book was an opportunity to dive more deeply into the artist's varied works - not just his well know pieces, but also many of his lesser known ones.

The author's introduction is very capable and illuminating (if a bit short) - taking the reader on a journey across the artist's career (including both his pre 1937 period in which he focused mainly on the Italian and Spanish countryside; and his post 1937 period, in which he focused increasingly on studies in perspective, metamorphosis, and the infinite), and illuminating aspects that many viewers miss out on ... such as the artist's incredible talent for spatial precision and fine etchmanship (most of Escher's works are carved, rather than drawn - something that's easy to miss out on if you've only seen pictures of the works, rather than the originals themselves).

All in all, I found this book to be a very adequate, if unspectacular, introductory overview of Escher's works.
