I just picked this book The Magic Mirror of M.C. Escher [25th Anniversary Edition] up thinking that there has been a “NEW” book published on M.C. Escher’s work. When I got it home, I checked it against other Escher books and was disappointed to find it is the same book published several times before and by different publishers. As you can see the, publication date of this edition is shown as April 6, 2007. Therefore, the reviewers here must have been looking at a previous publication, possibly the one also listed here as a paperback in 1987.The copy I had was even earlier, published by Ballantine in 1976. The quality of this Taschen Edition is very good, in fact, superior to the paperback editions I have seen and will be enjoyed by anyone who likes M.C. Esher’s work but the material included has not changed. I believe this is an excellent book and agree with the reviews already written on other editions. I guess what we have here is A 25 Year Celebration of its first publication. This is an excellent chance to obtain this book and will be enjoyed, particularly by people new to Escher’s work. The fact that this edition has now come out speaks volumes about what a great book this was and it’s great to see it available again. You can purchase this book at Amazon.
