Product Details

Praise

Visual perception is created through the interplay between the eye and the brain. Optic art and optical illusions exploit the boundaries of this interplay to produce confusing, amusing, or discordant results. Visual artist Sarcone (Hidden Picture Puzzles) explains basic types of optical illusions in this cookbook-style guide including: size distortion; ambiguous figures; hidden or suggested figures within ­camouflage; impossible figures; and suggested movement. Readers may use the techniques introduced here to attempt optical illusions in any medium they wish. Most of the illusions presented are geometric, abstract, and black and white, though ambitious readers could try incorporating color into their designs. VERDICT Commercial artists and designers can use this guide as a reference book, but it will be delightful for anyone who has ever wondered how an optical illusion works.
