Overview

Turn the pages in Trick Eyes to reveal wheels that turn, shapes that shrink and grow, and strait lines that curve. You don't need special 3-d glasses or deep concentration- visual illusion is a phenomenon that everyone can see! From waving red and white dots to sliding green rectangles, unbelievable spectacles of movement and color emerge from simple shape and line combinations.

Visual illusion is the misperception that happens when you eyes and brain play tricks when they process images. Illusion designer Akiyoshi Kitaoka shares more than one hundred images that appear to be different than they really are, including parallel lines that look like they're going to crash and flat patterns that seem to bulge from the page.

\ \

With explanations of the science behind visual illusions and techniques for creating your own designs, Trick Eyes explores the colorful, exciting world of illusion, where a new trick bursts from every page!
