Escherization. Over his life, the Dutch graphic artist M.C.
Escher created over a hundred ingenious tesselations in the plane. Some were simple and geometric, used as prototypes for more complex endeavors. But in most the tiles were recognizable animal forms such as birds, fish and reptiles. The definitive reference on Escher's divisions of the plane is Doris Schattschneider's Visions of Symmetry, now in a second edition. A good place to view some of Escher's work online is the World of Escher. Escher was able to discover such tilings through a combination of natural ability and sheer determination. Given a shape S, find a new shape T such that: T is as close as possible to S; and Copies of T fit together to form a tiling of the plane. We have developed an algorithm that can produce reasonable solutions to the Escherization problem. A parameterized space of tilings. Here are some images produced using Escherization.

Locher, former Director of the Gemeentemuseum, The Hague. This edition consists of museum quality facsimile reprints of 16 of the most famous lithographs, woodcuts and drawings by the graphic artist M.C. Escher (1898 - 1972). Each copyright-protected image is printed in a limited edition of only 450, individually numbered and stamped with the authentication seal of the M.C. Escher Foundation. The 16 prints will be packed and shipped in a solid linen De-Luxe box, measuring 57 x 68 cm (22 1/2 x 26 3/4"),with an English language translation of an introductory text by the leading Dutch Escher expert J.L.

Escher Foundation was established by M.C. Escher himself in 1968 and its goal was to preserve the legacy of his work. Unfortunately, a large part of the original collection was sold in 1981 to an American art dealer and is thus scattered over the world. Fea-escher. Escher for Real.

Escher needs no introduction. We have all learned to appreciate the impossibilities that this master of illusion's artwork presents to the layman's eye. Nevertheless, it may come as a surprise for some, but many of the so-called 'impossible' drawings of M. C. Convention: In the following sequences, figures are frequently presented in pairs. The Penrose Triangle: We start with the Penrose triangle object (also independently invented by Oscar Reutersvard). The Penrose Rectangle: The impossible shape conveyed by the Penrose triangle is the most well-known one.
The Pennrose Pentagon: Similarly and following the construction of a Penrose triangle and Penrose rectangle, one can easily create an arbitrary Penrose n-gon. The Penrose Triangle II: Here we present another way to simulate and realize geometry that looks like the Penrose triangle from a certain view.
