It is the last weekend of an exhibit of the works of Dutch artist Maurits Cornelius Escher at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, NH. I had no idea he was so popular until I arrived and saw the lines. However it was worth the wait. I had no idea of the breadth of this work. Monday (January 5, 2015) is the last day of the exhibit, Don't miss it!
Photography was not allowed of the exhibit, but this detail from a poster is an indication of the way Escher would play with perspective in his illustrations
Little did I realize that I would be standing in the cold for an hour just to get to the INNER line.
The folks were friendly though

Someone remarked that the line which extended up and down several staircases resembled a work of Escher. How true!
Photography of the exhibit was prohibited
Without showing any photos I can only state the work is incredibly precise. Magnifying glasses were made available which show the incredible detail of his work.

How great is this font?
