Bats and birds that look like faces! Skulls that pop up on anything white! Three donkeys with three ears between them! And walls that disappear! Relax, they're only optical illusions. Examine thousand-year-old drawings, find out about closure, perspective, and "the Rubin vase," and how these tools can untangle the tricks found in this volume. 352 pages, 180 b/w illus., 4 3/16 x 5 1/4.

Very interesting book.

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

This book is very interesting although some of the illusions are very puzzling they draw you further into the world of illusions.It also tells you some history about some of the pictures illustrated in the book which makes it that much more interesting to read and to focus our eyes on.on the front cover of the book it states clearly what the book is called and who the author is and on the back of the book it has a very clear blurb which describes what you are about to read. all together the book is very interesting and would recommend it to young and older readers.
