M. C. Escher







Every day, I will be posting a new button which I will be giving away. To get today's button, all you need to do is to make a comment before I post the next button. A winner will be picked randomly by me. Good luck!

Today's feature is M. C. Escher, a Dutch graphic artist known for his mathematically-inspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints (a printmaking process of the intaglio family, technically a drypoint method.)

Great idea and great artist to start with. Escher's works are both playful and mathematical - always a good combo!
