6 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) is one of the world's most admired modern artists and his engravings and lithographs immediately recognizable for their architectural explorations of infinity. From 1958 until his death in 1972, the Dutch artist wrote letters to his son George who had immigrated to Canada. The correspondence reproduced here - originally written in Dutch and translated into English - discusses Escher's work, including current projects, collaborative books on his art, the sale of his prints, and the production of various films on his life. The letters also make reference to the artist's health, his family and friends, his personal reading, current events and the celebrities, political officials and academics who came into contact with Escher over the course of his career notably F.D. Roosevelt, Stanley Kubrick and Dr. Arthur L. Loeb. Accompanying the letters are an introduction by George Escher, a selection of family photographs, and several full page colour plates of Escher's work

In this overview of the life and work of M.C. Escher, examples of his incredibly detailed prints are shown and analyzed with particular attention to his use of symmetry and geometrical figures. Patterns in the Italian countryside and mosaic tiles from Spain were two major influences in the printmaker's work, as was the work of mathematicians specializing in "impossible objects" which could be drawn, but not created in three dimensional space. Escher incorporated all of these elements to create a fantastic world described as an encounter between imagination and the culture of mathematics and science
