ab: Much has been written about the mathematical aspects of M.C. Escher’s
work; see in particular {\it B. de Smit} and {\it H.W. Lenstra, jun.}
[Notices Am. Math. Soc. 50, No. 4, 446‒457 (2003; Zbl 1159.01353)].
This well written article has something to offer even for those who are
familiar with Escher’s mathematical side: details about Escher’s
life, and his interactions with mathematicians such as Penrose and
Coxeter.
