Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
"Graphic artist Robert Ausbourne" reveals the mystery behind a wide spectrum of optical illusions in this fascinating, full-colour book. Entertaining turn-of-the-century illusions are presented along with impossible 3-D objects, including diagrams that show how to create these complex figures. Other chapters focus on colour perception, afterimages, ambiguous figures and illusions in nature. Over 300 colourful illustrations by the author and other talented artists supplement classic examples, all of which are accompanied by text and captions that explain the history, technique, or effect of various types of illusions.

To do a helpful Review about this book;I'll try to compare it with some of my favorite books on the subject.
First let me say that this book and most others are exceptionally well constructed,using the best of paper,printing ,picture and illustration quality in both color and B & W.This book was published by Sterling and ,as always,they publish excellent quality in all their books that I've seen.It will withstand lots of use,both in schools,libraries and personal , even the soft cover editions.
Most books I have, generally cover some history and include a number of Optical Illusions that are classics such as the Rabbit/Duck (pg16),the All In Vanity portrait by Gilbert,1892 (pg 21),Impossible Triangles (pg 56-59),The Devil's Fork (pg 62), Never-ending Up/Down Stairs, (pg 64-65),After Iimages (pg 104-105),Camouflage &Mimicry (pg119-120)Tops-Turvey Illusions (pg140-143),etc.
What Robert Ausbourne,who is himself is a Designer with a degree in Technical Illustration and Art History does, is cover the world of Optical Illusions,with photographs and illustrations of the various types of llusions,and in most cases with his own versions.His examples are excellent and even someone who is verry familiar with Optical Illusions and seen several books;will find Ausbourne's works refreshing and interesting.He also gives considerable information as to what makes these Illusions work.If you are new to this fascinating world of Optical Illusions ,or thinking of buying a book for yourself or someone else,this would be an excellent choice.The only area where this book falls a little short in in the Bibliography.I would suggest thebooks by authors Al Seckel,Sarcone & Waeber,Del Prete,,and of course M.C. Esher ,the master of Optical Illusions ,not even mentioned in the book.Should you want to learn about "Drawing Visual Illusions" check out that book by Natalie Sirett.Then again,the Net provides a virtual unlimited amount of information and examples,simply search "Optical Illusions".
