    Great Inside Look

    I always check out the Escher section every time i go to Barnes and Noble. But last time i went i saw this book and the title itself made me so interested that i bought it without even thinking about it. If i could pick one person in the world to help explain something crazy they had done, it would be M.C.Escher explaining his madness. Just the talent behind the art itself would be enough, but then the logic behind it is ridiculous. Just to think of figuring all that stuff out makes my brain ache. Ive heard many other peoples opinions of Eschers work, and by that ive decided on my own how i feel about it. But this turned everything i knew upside down. I now have a new understanding of this art from a pretty reliable source. I would recommend this book to any artist from beginers to my own Visual Arts teacher.

    Whoa!!

    I saw one of his 'infinities'(bats and angels) in my chemistry book, of all place, and I was astounded!! I would reccomend this and/or any of Escher's books to anyone who loves art or anything just kinda different and unusual.
