I recently found a Pop-Up book of Escher drawings and this adds another dimmension, because, not only are there the original illusions but the maker has managed to make complex pop-up's as well. Amazing.

The POP-UP book of M. C. ESCHER

Intriguing, but Google isn't my friend today. What did you use as search terms ? "Escher's waterfall model" "Escher model" etc didn't come up with any card models.

The model is an optical illusion and only works from a single point of view. Look close and you can see that the cross channels are broken


Escher's drawings are a false perspective and impossible in real life. You would be just as well off with a print of the drawing

Have a look at the "how to draw Escher" sites and it becomes quite clear how it's done. I didn't know there were models of them but they sound great. I hope you find one. Would be a great talking point. I love all things Escher but you'll be surprised how many people havn't seen them/ How bizarre.
