The Art of Optical IllusionsPaperback - 2000
Optical illusions have fascinated the human mind for centuries. By defying common perception and the working of the eye with subtle, mind-teasing images, the optical illusions are presented in both color and black and white. With a variety of themes and effects, every type of optical illusion is represented in The Art of Optical illusions, from the much-loved ground/field reversal images, where one shape switches into another and back again constantly, through Escherist impossible crates and eternal spirals, to innovative new images such as the scintillating grid illusion.
Each entry comes with a clear description of what the illusion is and how to see it, making The Art of Optical Illusions the perfect collection of images from this fascinating area where the boundaries of art and science blur.
