MC Escher Woodcuts and Wood Engravings

      Escher claimed that black and white were the tools of a true graphic artist, but as his creations became more complex he needed additional colors to help distinguish one animal from another within his tessellations.  Each color requires its own woodblock in the printing process.  The inks he used were sensitive to the sunlight, thus making it rare to find these prints in pristine condition.
