Originality is merely an Illusion

MC Escher Quotation

The brief for this project was quite simple – one had to choose a popular phrase or a quotation by somebody famous and then do a typographic composition around it.

Even though it took me quite some time to figure out what quote, once I realised that its author could be nobody but MC Escher, things caught up pace. Having been intrigued by his work, the mobius strip and its presence in his work, I decided on this composition. The letters are hand-written, though I kept the typeface Optima as my reference.
