The Art of Deception

Yesterday, I received a copy of book "The Art of Deception" by Brad Honeycutt. This is an excellent compilation of different kind of optical illusions, which were artistically represented by many modern artists around the world.
There were presented on only traditional techniques of art, but also marquetry, sculpture and others.
This book should be in collection of everyone, who interested modern art and optical illusions.

Illusion - Confusion

Recently, I received a book "Illusion - Confusion" by Paul Baars, in which he collected examples of almost all known kinds of illusions. There's a lagre section about impossible figures in the book. Among other images, there's one my impossible figure published there.

The distinctive feature of the book is using double page spread for representing large images. For example, Escher's Metamorphoses II fit into two fragments, when in meny other book it was divided into much more parts.

The book will be a good supplement for collectioners and astonishing gift for everyone.
