In San Francisco,
almost anywhere you look is Escher City.
Mysteries inherent in the work of this renown Dutch-born graphic artist are
reflected in San Francisco, a city made of windows and stairs piled on
gravity-defying hills. Played out in a maze of architecture, perspective, and
impossible spaces, it is no wonder that San Franciscan lives follow a
similar emotional trajectory. This fascination is expressed more explicitly toward San Francisco in
Hitchcock's Vertigo and Maupin's
Tales of the City.
