"...highly engaging...This vivid introduction to the use of illusion in art makes often complex visual effects understandable and fun. Chapters on trompe l'oeil, surrealism, perspective, anamorphosis, reversible images and op art explain the concepts with remarkable clarity; handsome reproductions, including works by artists as diverse as Raphael and Magritte, Holbein and Dali, are riveting. Seurat, Escher and the vegetable' artist Arcimboldo have their own well-deserved sections, which, like the others, include numerous exercises in looking at the images and even creating one's own optical illusions."-- Publishers Weekly . "...encourages young readers to analyze and discover ways the artist has worked."-- Arts & Activities . A Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers' Choice 1997.
