Visions of Symmetry
Notebooks, Periodic Drawings, and Related Work of M. C. Escher
"Many books have been written about Escher's art. None has approached Visions of Symmetry for its scope, scale and sumptuousness."
Visions of Symmetry contains Escher's complete set of symmetry drawings, reproduced in full colour, and two Escher notebooks (which contain his theory of symmetry). In all, there are more than 350 intriguing illustrations (about 80 of which were never published before). Escher's own descriptions, translated from the Dutch, offer a glimpse into the creative mind of this renowned graphic artist.

In keeping with the global perspective of the book, each chapter is accompanied by comments from experts from first, second and third world countries.
