Summary:
"Maurits Cornelis Escher was a truly unique artist whose vision was quite unlike anyone else's. To enter his world is to set foot into unknown and unsettling territory. His extraordinary pictures of logic and perspective fool the brain into believing the impossible- that staircases can climb forever, that fish can morph into birds, and that water can run uphill."--Jacket.
