Leave this book out where guests can find it and it won't take long before they are totally entranced by the illusions found here. Drawn from nature and art, these incredible images will amuse, amaze and confuse the viewer.

From ambiguous illusions and composite drawings to trompe l'oeil and masterly tricks of perspective, this collection will have you shaking your head in amazement. 'This book contains illusions from a variety of different artists, researchers, and photographers,' writes Bead Honecutt in the introduction. 'These images have been categorized into chapters based on illusion type. Many of the images in this book contain elements of two (or more) of these categories ... Regardless of their assigned category, the optical illusions presented in this book will hopefully perplex you and bring a smile to your face simultaneously.'

The chapters range from Ambiguous, Impossible, Composite, Estimation and Trompe L'Oeil to Topsy-Turvy, Natural, Perspective, and Motion. You'll find a Solutions section and additional information on the featured selections at the back of the book.

As the author notes, 'Illusions are also a good reminder that we do not see the world as it really exists, but rather as how we perceive it with our own eyes and biases.' As you page through Exceptional Eye Tricks you'll find ample proof of this observation!
