For the artist Escher, the skin of the visible world was a piece of cloth that could be cut, folded, shaped, and rearranged in many ways. This title presents many of Esher's greatest works, from the great master prints to numerous previously unpublished drawings, and arranges them to form a cinematic journey of discovery. His preparatory sketches and jottings, which give insights into the working processes of his mind are also included.

J.L. Locher is a former director of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, and the author of books on Mondrian, Klee, and others.Review:
“With the exception of a brief foreword, an introduction and a spattering of quotations from the artist, ‘The Magic of M.C. Escher’ is entirely visual, filled with prints, drawings, and rough sketches.”
- The New York Times Book Review
“[Escher’s] imaginative metamorphoses of geometric patterns into flocks of birds and mind-bending spatial inventions epitomize our astonishment with the inter-related profusion of the world.”
