What is an original Escher print? And, how do I know if my print is original?

    "Print" is a vague word and its meaning in the art world varies.  Please read on to learn why Escher, who specialized in woodcuts and lithographs, would be appalled by poster vendors' liberal use of the word "print."  Learn the salient features every original print will have.
