Optical illusions intrigue the mind and delight the eye. Viewers try to perceive the visual shifts in a twodimensional picture, but can t understand how a single, still image can be so animated and rich. While even the simplest illusions please, this stunning volume goes far beyond the usual collection. Compiled by visual graphics expert Brad Honeycutt and puzzle master Terry Stickels and featuring a foreword by renowned puzzle creator, computer game designer, and artist Scott Kim this collection showcases over two hundred of the finest images from around the world. With artists ranging from Rafael Olbinski, Rob Gonsalves, and Octavio Ocampo to David MacDonald, Gene Levine, and M. C. Escher, The Art of the Illusion covers the visual spectrum, from the most classic optical illusions to complex graphic and painterly designs that transform the impossible into believable. There are famous paintings, dazzling photographs, and amazing computer-enhanced eye treats that will make you look and look again. There s Zipper Beach with gulls zipping over the sands, Table Top Towers where a tower of blocks seems to meld into a city skyline, a librarian whose body is literally composed of books, and so many more astounding pieces. This is a must-have for those who already love optical illusions and those just discovering the wonders of the art.
