    1. Boy, I really enjoy this volume! For people unfamiliar with the name Escher, many have, nonetheless, seen some of his more mind bending works. Many of his artistic creations have an impossibility about them--even as they look reasonable in terms of specific parts of each. Other of his woodcuts or wood engravings are enchanting in their own right. The first part of the book is more biographical, although this segment is also richly sprinkled with examples of his work.But it is the catalog, startn [...]


    2. This text has a lengthy biography complete with letters. It is followed by a paper on Escher's work from the perspective of mathematician Bruno Ernst. Also included is a 20 page (huge pages) essay by M.C. Escher on his "hobby" of regular division of the plane, as translated into English. Finally there is a catalog containing all the prints and work Escher prepared onto paper wrought on paper. Unfortunately, most of the catalog is in black and white. This really robs many of the works of their fu [...]


    3. Excellent review of Escher's life and work with images of diagrams and models he created in figuring out problems related to dividing the plane and figure/space/plane relations. Explanations about how he created his visual puzzles are given. Escher's personal letters to colleagues and family give rise to his personal perspectives on his work and life. The only issue: text at times refers to particular works and where to find these images are not readily identified - I find myself having to go to [...]


    4. This is one of my all time favorite books and I have read it a number of times. I still cannot get over the level of details and mathematical precision used when they are in fact lithographs and where done some of them in the 30s. I was first introduced to his work as posters from the student haven called Athena (yes you know the one) and rapidly became fascinated with his impossible works. Always a joy to read and i think this is the best book on his work.


    5. This book contained not only the old familiar favorites, but many works new to me as well. I enjoyed looking at them The drawing of his father on his deathbed somewhat startled me.There were also many biographical pages. They would be helpful for anyone with an interest in his life or doing research for school.


    6. Simply stunning. The text is insightful describing Escher's loss to explain why he, alone apparently, was fascinated by the 'tiling of the plane'; is poignant in his son's description of Escher's last days. Those new to Escher will be stunned to find out that his works were primarily done as woodcuts. The wood blocks, then inked, are used to stamp the images with which we are all familiar.


    7. A work colleague introduced me to the brilliant works of Escher many years ago. I am still amazed by the brilliance of his art. superb.


    8. I read this book years ago and I found the writing to be pretty clear. What I loved about this though was that there were an extensive number of pictures of Escher's works.






    9. I actually found this at a yard sale. Besidea having hundreds of prints of Escher's work it also has a complete bio.
