'Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible' - M.C.Escher 'Art and mathematics combine in this 3D homage ... Tricky concepts of infinity, paradox and perspective are re-imagined in playful form as his famous woodcuts and drawings rise triumphantly from the page to refute any allegations of their nonsensical impossibility' - Daily Telegraph 'One of the most ambitious pop-up books projects of all time ... a great introduction to the famous Dutch artist's graphic work' - Creative Review
