There are a couple of people who are prominent in books on Optical Illusions.Gianni Sarcone & Marie-Jo Waeber ,the co-authors of this book,are one of them ;and Al Seckel is another.Either of them have published several books and all are excellent.I have written reviews on a few of them.
Though published in 2007,Eye Tricks is worth getting.It is a soft cover,9 X 10 inches,160 pages,of excellent construction,high,heavy quality paper,and excellent printing and color rendition.It consists of 150 amazing Optical Illusions,mostly full page illustrations.The high quality of these is very important in conveying the "magic" in these Illusions.The Illusions are presented in 6 Galleys or Chapters .Following each Galley ,Solutions are given for each Illusion and accompained with explanations of the principles behind the Illusion and also illustrations where useful.The authors are co-founders of The Archimedes-lab.Many of the Illusions are of their own design,several are adaptions or different versions of Illusions of the same principle;and some are historical and Illusions that have entertained people for many years,all around the world and of all ages.
There are many ,many Optical Illusions and this book is a good representation of the various types.
Although not Optical Illusions; there are also several Dissection Puzzles that the reader can make,such as Leonard's Puzzle on page 24,Appearing and Disappearing Birds on page 78,Tangrams on page 80,and 88,The Impossible Square on page 13,View The Rainbow in Profile on page 122,Boxed Boxes on page 114,and The Mischievous Arrows on page 142.
This book will welcome you into the World of Optical Illusions.
