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!

Patrick, Escher has marvelous creations. Perhaps you found already sites where his work is shown. If not, have a look at this site: http://images.google.nl/images?q=escher&hl=nl&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=images&ct=title
