M.C. Escher needs no introduction. Or if you prefer, you can read him up on wikipedia or visit his official website. He's the guy responsible for creating amazing illustrations using optical illusions.
This small book is a neat package containing his well known works as well as the less public ones. There's an introduction by M.C. Escher himself. All the illustration are caption to explain the ideas behind.
His works inspire artists all over the work. Here's a slideshow of some photos on the keyword "escher" from Flickr.
