Maurits Cornelis Escher (Dutch pronunciation: ; 17 June 1898 – 27 March 1972) was a Dutch graphic artist who made red woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints. Despite wide popular interest, Escher was for long somewhat neglected in the art world, even in his native Netherlands. He was 70 before a retrospective exhibition was held. In the twenty-first century, he became more widely appreciated, with exhibitions across the world.

KATHERINE GLEASON is the author of Alexander McQueen: Evolution and more than thirty books for adults and children including Masterpieces in 3-D: . Escher and the Art of Illusion and Releasing the Goddess Within. She has also written articles for several periodicals including the Boston Globe, Connoisseur, and Women's Feature Service.

Escher's art became well known among scientists and mathematicians, and in popular culture, especially . From 1919 to 1922, Escher attended the Haarlem School of Architecture and Decorative Arts, learning drawing and the art of making woodcuts

Escher's art became well known among scientists and mathematicians, and in popular culture, especially after it was featured by Martin Gardner in his April 1966 Mathematical Games column in Scientific American. Apart from being used in a variety of technical papers, his work has appeared on the covers of many books and albums. From 1919 to 1922, Escher attended the Haarlem School of Architecture and Decorative Arts, learning drawing and the art of making woodcuts. He briefly studied architecture, but he failed a number of subjects (due partly to a persistent skin infection) and switched to decorative arts, studying under the graphic artist Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita.

I'm a 3-D nut and this book is a real find! In anaglyph formats, you get the familiar red/blue paper glasses, but this book is different, echoing the 3-D stereoscopes of yesteryear. The book builds in a solid viewer with real lenses that fold up opposite the pages. Open the notebook-style pages and hold them up opposite the viewer, move either to adjust focus for your eyes... et voila! 3-D! It sounds complicated, but it's really simple.

Escher (you get a brief biography of the man in the book) made his mark by drawing pictures with impossible perspectives, but that didn't comprise all of his art. Seeing it in 3-D enhances the experience of viewing this man's groundbreaking artwork. Ironically, i found that one or two plates actually didn't work as well in 3-D, but only because of the impossible perspectives Escher accomplished with his pen. It's a tiny quibble, however, and the drawings still look great in 3-D. This book is sadly out of print, but if you like 3-D, it's well-worth tracking down a copy.

The images in this book have been processed to put various image elements in different viewing planes. The objects in the views have no three-dimensional depth themselves.

This is most egregious in a view of a sphere, which is displayed as a flat disk; in reflections, which have the same distance as the object they are reflected in (they should have the cumulative depth from the viewer to the reflector and from the reflector to the object); and in linear objects at a viewing angle - such as Escher's wonderful stairways - which should differ in depth from from to back but instead are in planes.

Think of this as a flat version of a pop-up book with all pop-ups parallel to each other and at right angles to the viewer. Everything is flat, but not at the same distance.

There is some good fun in this, but expect to be disconcerted, possibly even disappointed.

It is a long way from true three-dimensional viewing.

Not that Escher's art needs any help being interesting and amazing. But viewing his art through the 3-D lens "pop-up" on the inside cover adds another cool dimension. Lots of fun for all ages. Easy to adjust the 3-D lens to view each piece on different pages. Book is sturdy. We ordered a gently used copy from Amazon and enjoy the book over and over.

M C Escher is my favorite artist. I just can't get enough of his work. This is a great book.

During his life time, M.C. Escher made 448 lithographs, woodcuts and wood engravings and over 2000 drawings and sketches. He is also known as books illustrator, painter, and decorator. It would take the volumes to publish all his works and Katherine Gleason's "Masterpieces in 3-d - M. C. Escher and the Art of Illusion" does not try to capture all of them. The book contains 40 of Escher's most famous prints and drawings in 3-D. Each print is accompanied with the short but informative and interesting caption. The prints start with the master's early Self-portrait in a Chair which was created in 1920 when Escher was 22 years old, and end with his very last "Snakes" (1969), woodcut printed from three blocks in orange, green, and black. Between the two, the fascinated reader-viewer will enjoy Escher's unforgettable prints showing impossible structures that lead nowhere in never ending movement, the visions of reflection connecting different spatial realities in one image, the closed and infinite systems of creation and cycles, and the prints from his series of tessellating figures that morphed from one form to another, from dimensionality to flatness, from darkness to light and back, and from reality to illusion.

I've been a huge fan of Escher's works for many years since I saw his lithographs "Hand with Reflecting Sphere", "Three Worlds", Reptiles", "Drawing Hands", "Waterfall", "Relativity", "Cycle", and woodcuts "Day and Night" and "Tower of Babel" first time many years ago. They are all in the Katherine Gleason's book, and I can enjoy them now as 3-D images. The effect is mesmerizing, mysterious, and marvelous. I bought this book as the gift to myself, and it is one of the best gifts I've had. I open it every day, looking through the lenses of the fold out glasses at the picture bringing it into focus and watching it becoming alive and three-dimensional. I know it is about the laws of physics and optics but I like to call it a miracle that I am a part of and that happens in front of my eyes.

Manipulating 2d into 3D is not easy to do, but can be done with time and patience. These are mostly fun images to view, but have problems. You can see where elements are cut, moved, and pasted and then not filled in where they used to be. Escher images would be extremely difficult to convert correctly since they are optical illusions. Worth having if you are an Escher fan like me.
lifestyle
The book provides a good rendition on comparative spatial
forms. It depicts the following:
o a self portrait of a man in a chair
o starfish-like images
o multiple puddles
o rippled surfaces
o dew drops
o a hand and reflecting sphere

The contents would provide good artistic conversation in
a modern art setting.
