I'm doing Mad-Cool-Math Nuggets this month.
E is for M.C. Escher, the Dutch graphic artist whose mathematically inspired works explored things like infinity and impossible constructions. Enjoy.
An Escher-like staircase from See1,Do1,Teach1
An Escher cube in magnets from Aldo Cavinni Benedetti. Man, these make me go cross-eyed.
You can even make an Escher tessellation with cookies like these from fdecomite. If they get too confusing, just gobble them up.
What's your favorite Escher image?
Also, if you'd like to read one of my short stories for free, Ursa Major, is available for download at the perfect price ($0.00) this week only! Note that this is the single. Ursa Major is also the title story in a collection that has come out this month with the same cover art. Ursa Major is a coming-of-age tale about a young boy, bullies, and bears. Oh my!
