Mathematically inspired pop-ups that feature Escher's mind-blowing arrangements.
The mesmerizing work of Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher has fascinated viewers for more than seventy years. His illustrations constantly play with our perceptions of reality by layering multiple conflicting perspectives.
Produced in association with the Escher estate, this book presents some of the artist’s most intriguing works in original three-dimensional pop-ups. These marvelous paper constructions allow us to appreciate in new ways the artist’s impossible geometry and his themes of infinity and paradox.
