Exceptional Eye Tricks Book Review

Whether they're drawn from nature or art, optical illusions can amaze, amuse, confuse, and fool the viewer. They remind us that we do not see the world as it is, but only filtered through our own perceptions. This stunning collection captures the full breadth of the form, from composite images and trompe l'oeil to tricks of perspective and the absolutely impossible. There are ambiguous illusions with multiple meanings, depending on how you look. In "Dance with Me," can you see the ominous face gazing at a happy couple dancing among the trees? If you want to glimpse the magic in a topsy-turvy illusion, just rotate the page to reveal some hidden imagery. Viewed one way, "The Mysterious Island," painted by Hungarian artist István Orosz, shows a small ship sailing through an opening in some rocks. But turn it upside down and instead there's a portrait of the great author Jules Verne! And of course, there are illusions where things seem to be the same size when they're really not and others that seem to be in motion when, of course, they're completely still.
From a twice-as-beautiful-as-one double rainbow to a fully intact wall that appears to have crumbled, these mysterious illusions will fascinate and enchant anyone who loves art, science, and magic.

Our Review:
The Exceptional Eye Tricks book is a great coffee table book. As soon as I received it, I could not resists flipping through it right away to check out the different photos and images. Although there are a couple of images I have seen before, I would say that I haven't seen most of them before. The photos and images are very fascinating. The optical illusions definitely made me question what I was looking at.

To buy this fun and interesting book, please visit the Imagine Publishing Website.
