Review on the Art of Optical Illusions

By: Paul Hood

What do you say when you want someone to believe you? Probably, you'll say, "I saw it with my own eyes." That's because you believe that if you have seen something with your own eyes, it must be true. But your eyes can fool you.

Certain patterns confuse your eyes and brain, causing you to misjudge the size of a circle, or the length of a line. When your eyes see a picture, they "send" that picture to your brain. Then it's up to your brain to make sense of the picture. But sometimes your brain gets it wrong.These are optical illusions.

Most published books contain age old illusions without offering a scientific explanation to enlighten the reader how their eyes and brain was tricked.

With Optical Illusions, we have an alternative.

Optical Illusions is a good collection of a wide array of visual and other types of sensory illusion. It contains a large number of illusions that have not yet appeared before. Thanks to new discoveries in vision science, new effects have been added plus classics with a significant augmentation done. A wide variety of effects are shown with over 150 illusions presented to give your eyes a wonderful visual experience.

Perception is everything

A testimonial by a satisfied reader…

“The Art of Optical Illusions' will trick and treat your eyes. Images appear from nowhere, flat surfaces become three-dimensional, and pictures with paradoxes become peculiarly perplexing. This is a true amusement park for the mind. The lavishly produced collection of 150 color and black and white pictures are displayed in four galleries. Each gallery is followed by a page containing the explanations for the illusions. Under each picture, there is a short description of how to enjoy the illusion or a description of how to make the illusion work…" -- Rebecca@SeasonedwithLove.com
