Book Review: The Art of the Illusion: Deceptions to Challenge the Eye and the Mind

The Art of the Illusion: Deceptions to Challenge the Eye and the Mind


I always find books on optical illusions fun to read. There's that certain delight you get when being tricked by an image, and also the sense of wonder when looking something improbable while trying to figure out what's wrong.

The Art of the Illusion, a 224-page hardcover authored by Brad Honeycutt and Terry Stickels, looks at the several forms of optical illusions such as drawings, photos, geometric shapes, 3D-like street paintings and others. Other than some of the more famous illusions, there are many new ones that I've not seen before.

Websites for the artists featured are also listed so you can explore more online.

It's a nice book to get if you like illusive art.

The Art of the Illusion: Deceptions to Challenge the Eye and the Mind is available at Amazon (US | CA | UK | DE | FR | IT | ES | JP | CN) and Book Depository
