Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Prepare to be amazed! Inside the covers of this incredible, colorful collection are hundreds of the worldand#8217;s most powerful optical illusions. Theyand#8217;re beautiful to behold, and stunning in their trickery. Some of the mind-boggling images seem to spring into action, vibrating, pulsing, and spinning like a hula hoop. Other ambiguous illusions feature two subjects in one: the fun is in finding them both in the single pictureand#151;including a mouse playing hide and seek in a catand#8217;s face and a strange desert mirage where palm trees imperceptibly morph into camels. And still more, like and#147;The Impossible Terrace,and#8221; which couldnand#8217;t exist off the page: just try to figure out if youand#8217;re viewing the space from above or below. Every one is astonishing.

Synopsis:

You'll see . . . but won't believe! This amazing collection of 500 optical illusions brims with the best eye tricks and visual oddities. Try to figure out how many legs the happy hippo has; what's weird about a very unusual building; why a page with wiggly, wavy lines can make you seasick, and more! Some of the images go back hundreds of years, but they'll all astound you as they mess with your mind, your perception, and your brain.
