A book to make your eyes hurt

Looking for a book that will make your eyes hurt? Thames and Hudson has just published The Magic of MC Escher. The artist (1898-1972) is famous for deceiving the mind’s eye. Escher’s works – woodcuts, lithographs, and drawings – are arranged to form a cinematic look at his achievements. There are 380 puzzling but fascinating illustrations with 330 of them in colour. Escher has attracted the attention of scientists, mathematicians and puzzled children everywhere. Even the gaming industry has borrowed from his artwork. Just keep staring hard.
