The reference to the Droste effect in the home page blog is interesting. The name stems from a 1904 ad for the chocolate product that we first met when my father’s Dutch colleague gave my sister and me a Droste chocolate apple for Christmas. Read about it on Wikipedia. I have always thought of it as the Land O Lakes butter carton effect. I regarded it a little less fondly when I later heard that there was a hidden naughty visual joke in the image involving the Indian maiden’s knees on the cover’s Droste effect image. But I still buy Land O Lakes butter and ponder the infinite receding image phenomenon.
