Robert Silvers' Photomosaics caused a sensation when they first reached the public back in 1996. Gracing the covers of Wired, Life, Publisher's Weekly, Newsweek and Sports Illustrated, Photomosaics attracted the attention of Good Morning America, NBC's Dateline, CNN, Fox, E!, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post and over 100,000 book-buying customers who went home with Silvers' first book. Photomosaic's are images that are themselves made up of hundreds, even thousands of tiny pictures using a patent-pending process designed by Silvers, himself. "Photomosaic Portraits" is the sequel to Silvers' successful 1997 title Photomosaics (Holt) and promises to be his most engaging collection yet. As the title implies, the book focuses Silvers' technology on portraits of significant historical and contemporary figures from various fields. Again, a large part of the appeal of Photomosaics lies in the relationship between the underlying images, or tiles, and the larger image they compose. For example, Photomosaic Portraits presents such images as Michael Jordan assembled from the 20th century's greatest athletes, or Richard Nixon composed from his enemies (including himself). Rich with both humor and meaning, "Photomosaic Portraits" will appeal to Silvers' established fans and to all those interested in optical illusion and imagery.
