A couple of carves inspired by Escher today. These were done a while back for a postal, and I know that there are a few carvers working on Escher currently. When looking at this interesting artist, I decided to go for some of his earlier work rather than the optical illusions for which he is so famous. I especially like this sweet drawing of a chrysanthemum.

Book plates are interesting. I was just asked to design a bookplate for a fellow letterboxer and it got my creative juices flowing...but, would I use a bookplate? I suppose if I was going to, it would have to be Star Wars-themed, because that is the majority of my library! lol! Just kidding...
Here is Escher's bookplate - I just love the vintage feel of it.
