Optical Illusions by Paul M. Baars

Details

No images are more compelling than optical illusions - some even produce irresistible physical responses. There is something intrinsically satisfying about static pictures that appear to move, change color, or fool us into seeing things that 'aren't really there.'

This comprehensive survey of optical illusions includes an astonishing range of images - some rare and others well known - from ancient times to the present. Covering illusions of depth, inversions, vibration effects, ambiguous figures, camouflage, anamorphic art, tessellations, and other brain-teasing illusions, it presents examples from psychology, the popular press, the decorative arts, and contemporary street art. Also includes illusionist works from the fine arts, with work by M. C. Escher, Pablo Picasso, Rene Magritte, Liu Bolin and many others. Paperback, 320 pages, Abrams publishing.
