Escher’s “Approaches to Infinity”: There Must Be Stars

I take this passage in Escher’s essay to be particularly appropriate for comics creators:

<< Mathematicomics // PART 1 | PART 2 | STARS


NEXT: “No one can draw a line that is not a boundary line…” >>

Please forgive the relentlessly masculine pronouns; I decided to leave Escher’s original text intact as much as possible, since mostly he seems to be referring to himself as “anyone” … ~ M

    1. Hmmm, I don’t know. Maybe just try it anyhow. If it posts to MY page for some reason, you can always just share it from there. ~ M
