M. C. Escher is as well known for his warped perspective & trick perspective art as for his tessellations.
I was first attracted to his perspective works and hyperrealism, when I was around 12. It wasn't until someone challenged me to make a tessellation, when I was around 30, that I got interested in tessellation. How about you-- do you like trick perspective? Can you do some? ~~ Seth Bareiss, webmaster of www.Tessellations.org
Ambigrams are words written in a clever way. Some are reversible-- the same upside down and rightside up, or forward and backward. Some show opposites like "up" and "dn" (short for "down"), or "devil" and "angel". Some, like Alain Nicolas's, aspire to be even more clever than that.
Although M. C. Escher never did ambigrams, and most ambigrams are not tessellations, I think this kind of art somewhat belongs in www.Tessellations.org, which is aaaaaall about Escher-style symmetry art
