This book is excellent! The pictures are big and the detail is wonderful. The comments are great for understanding the context of each of Escher's works. I would recommend this book to anyone.
I own this and many of the other books about MC Escher. I find his work to be both a puzzle to the eye and mind, yet at the same time thoroughly engrossing. When I am stumped for a writing project or art project I take out this book and study a picture. Ascending and Descending is a good block breaker! =) Totally awesome book!
