Editorial Reviews

Waterfalls that seem to descend upward; rings of seahorses that appear to rotate on the page; butterflies that metamorphose into warriors; staircases where climbers emerge into other dimensions. Al Seckel's Masters of Deception is a 320-page excursion into the unknown and a definitive view of optical illusions.

I was most impressed by the article about the artist from South Dakota, Dick Termes.
