Just about everyone know his art. Few people know his name.

Maurits Cornelis Escher, was born in the Netherlands on this day in 1898. The M.C. Escher Foundation and the M.C. Escher Company maintain an outstanding, comprehensive site about the artist and his work. A visit to the store is essential, first, to look at and purchase the quality merchandise, and second, to see a superb example of how to market your goods on the Internet. The entire site deserves a design award.  The site will also introduce you to tesselations. Learn more about them here.
