Overview

There’s something really magical about a stereogram; in fact, these stunning designs practically come alive with movement. As they tease and surprise our brains, they teach us to look at things differently and make us aware of how our eyes play tricks on us. And, of course, they are simply beautiful to see. Through the power of illusion and the illustrator’s skill, meaningless patterns and hidden objects on a 2-D page take shape and pop out in full, glorious, clearly defined 3-D. Images that were flat gain amazing dimension. These incredible, colorful, artistic creations offer unbelievable motion and depth.

Meet the Author

Gene Levine was raised in a family of artists. When he saw his first stereogram, he realized the artistic potential and quickly taught himself to create the images. Levine began colorstereo.com as an online gallery and was soon supplying most of the stereogram art for what would become the very successful TJ Mook series in Japan. He has been published in books and magazines all over the world, along with stereogram advertising and promotional applications. No one has done more to elevate the stereogram as an art form. Levine lives in Los Angeles, California. Gary Priester graduated from Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. He spent fifteen years as an art director and later ran a very successful graphics design firm. Priester discovered stereograms in the 1990s and remains as obsessed with the form today as he was then. He has created hundreds of stereograms over the years for a popular Japanese book series, and designs and makes custom versions for advertising and sales promotion. Priester and his wife live in Placitas, New Mexico.

    Highly recommended

    These pictures are amazing. I have loved stereograms since a friend pointed at one and said "Look closer", and the world opened up. But Priester and Levine take this art form to a whole new level.
