Graphical work by M.C. Escher
Netherlands, Bussum, August 2007
Some time ago I posted a photo of a tin box designed by Escher (http://www.fotothing.com/senna3/photo/854481d30d9ef61e3444d0eccafceb0a/start=198). Last week I found in a second hand bookshop in Amsterdam the book "Symmetry Aspects of M.C. Escher's Periodic Drawings" of 1965 by Prof. C.H. MacGillavry. Since I once followed lectures by MacGillavry on crystallography, I bought the book.
Today I started reading this book and to my surprise I found the drawing that Escher used for his tin box!
