Visual Illusion in Art - A Must Buy Book!
on 2 January 2009
This is a fantastic value book - great if you are particularly interested in visual illusion in art or it also makes a lovely coffee table book that you can just pick up and flick through whenever it takes your fancy!
The book covers 20 different types of visual illusion (e.g. visual suprise, paradoxical worlds, change of perspective, optical llusion, impossible figures etc) by focusing on the work of 20 different artists including Salvador Dali, Sandro Del-Prete and Escher. The layout is clean and simple and there are plenty of pictures to peruse! You also get information/background on each artist and their work so the book is a good all-rounder if you are a student.
In summary, a must-buy for any art enthusiast but you don't have to love art to love this book as it's such a joy to look through! I notice new things every time I pick this one off the shelf - highly recommended!
