Inhaltsangabe: Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) is one of the world's most admired modern artists and his engravings and lithographs immediately recognizable for their architectural explorations of infinity. From 1958 until his death in 1972, the Dutch artist wrote letters to his son George who had immigrated to Canada. The correspondence reproduced here - originally written in Dutch and translated into English - discusses Escher's work, including current projects, collaborative books on his art, the sale of his prints, and the production of various films on his life. The letters also make reference to the artist's health, his family and friends, his personal reading, current events and the celebrities, political officials and academics who came into contact with Escher over the course of his career notably F.D. Roosevelt, Stanley Kubrick and Dr. Arthur L. Loeb. Accompanying the letters are an introduction by George Escher, a selection of family photographs, and several full page colour plates of Escher's work. Published to document the donation by George Escher of a copy of his father's correspondence to the National Gallery of Canada Library and Archives.
