I just got an email from someone at the M. C. Escher Company in the Netherlands! He had just received an email I sent about licensing Escher’s work on April 11 — 7 weeks ago! That was the latest of a series of emails I’ve been sending to various email addresses since May 17 of last year. I’ve also tried faxing but their fax machine never answers. Of course there’s always the mail and I would probably have tried that as a last resort but I presumed I was just getting the cold shoulder. It’s not unusual for one email to get lost — but 6 or 7? I often tell people that when we have to license art, it’s a time-consuming process. This is an example.
But now there is a real person at the other end and maybe we’ll be able to offer some Escher charts before too long, if we can agree on terms. Keep your fingers crossed!
I shouldn’t reproduce any Eschers here without license but there is a nice gallery on the official website. Look on the left near the bottom for “Picture Gallery”.
