Yes, there is an English version of the CD Rom of which you were speaking.
I do a unit on Escher with my 5th grade art classes and
it has been wonderful to use! It is called Escher Interactive
from Byron Preiss Multimedia.
For those interested in creating Tesselations on the
computer MECC has a CD ROm called Tesselmainia Deluxe
that I highly reccomend.
If you are interested in a printmaking activity to teach
Escher. let me know and I would be glad to give you more information.
