I don’t know if you’ve heard of M. C. Escher, but he has created some great art over his long lifetime.

A lot of optical illusions. His book is a great one for the coffee table, so I

figured this should be a perfect fit for our Coffee Lounge.

Dick, I have M. C. Escher’s book and it is a good coffee table book. I had thoughts of carving one of his paintings. I still might some day.

One of my favorites as well Scott…I always loved the two hands each drawing the other. His works would make for very interesting carvings.
