Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Masters of Deception: Escher, Dali and the Artists of Optical Illusion (Paperback)
This book is all about the art of optical illusion in its many forms. I was familiar with Dali, Escher and Arcimboldo, but all the other 17 artists whose work is presented here are equally brilliant in their own way. Anamorphosis, trompe l'oeil, impossible 3D sculptures, and much more, almost every page brings an "ooh!", "aaah!", "wait a sec...." or "wow!". The text would have benefited from some editorial TLC and proof-reading, but that's more than offset by the brilliant pieces of art. Buy this book!
