Step into the color zone...where cool effects are the rule and nothing is what it first appears to be. Colors can always fool you—making objects seem larger, smaller, faster, or even better looking than they really are. And, when they interact with a range of very special forms and shapes, the optical magic becomes more powerful still. Just try one out and see if you can tell what’s going on.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is a book to ponder over and study a little at a time. Color and design have an enormous effect on our life. The author gives us many examples of the ways color and light can actually play a trick on us. Study the pages, answer the questions and then look for the author's answers at the back of the book to see if you were correct. We are tricked many times at the grocery store, by television and magazine ads, or at the auto dealership by color and the impressions it makes on our brains. Learn more about this fascinating field. The reader will learn more about the Laws of Proximity and Similarity and the Principles of Closure and Good Continuation. A glossary further explains terms used in the text. 2000, Sterling Publishing,

I got this book Colorful Illustions as a gift when I was sick and I was lucky to have a good light! These illusions are all about how color can fool your eyes and make you see things that aren't there. It seemed like the book was all for arty people but it isn't, it is for everybody. And the writer really makes it easy to understand what is going on with all the illusions and the way color can trick you. I give this book 5 stars for being really unique.
