I saw this book at the Design Museum, and I saw it for much cheaper on Amazon so purchased it here for my son as a gift. We both spent hours together looking through this book! It is such good quality and so many illusions are in it! I would totally recommend this book for anyone, not just kids. HE shows people who come to visit all the time and him and his friends can spend a long time looking through it. Really great book. (The cover is awesome which isn't really possible to see in a photograph)
A fascinating book, with ingenious moving parts and a "ready reckoner " so you can check that the lines in a picture really are straight . Great fun for all the family. My only criticism is that it's a bit short on content.
I quoted this rating because I was happy all round. Delivery in time for Christmas. Item was great gift and the boy I gave it too loved it. Would definately recommend it for boys around 10 years old and possibly older.
Book is rooted in known scientific artistic creations for in ways to mess with the loop hole of human brain optical nervous system!!! Great catalogue you would like to keep!
Great ways to tickle you preception, you will have fun mesmerised by many art designs new and old! Some are like as if you are on drugs .... things are moving in pictures.... but this is all quite normal and safe! .... don't worry... its the illusion!.. by the way eye is behaving or mind precieves.
Shame the book as not got 3D eye art puzzle illusions in as well.... The book has illusions of size shape colour and movement.... some in pop up page format... Attractive front puzzle cover!
Great birthday or other present.... Alex n Nix like it!.....
I bought this book for my daughter and Its one of the best books on optical illusions that I've seen. There are bits and pieces you can pull out and its very interactive. I can tell she likes it because she keeps picking it up and reading it and we've had it a year now. Its great !
Bought this as a Christmas gift for my son and the whole family (including grandparents) have really enjoyed looking at it. Great illustrations and pop ups. Well worth the money and a book I'm sure will be looked at over and over again.
