This comprehensive survey of optical illusions includes an astonishing range of images 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, contemporary street art and the fine arts. M. C. Escher, Picasso, Vasarely, Magritte, Liu Bolin, Jos de Mey and other artists are generously represented. Reflecting author Paul Baars's deep engagement with the art and science of optical illusions, this book supersedes all others on the subject.
