Publication Date:1991
Author Name:David Thomson


A collection of over thirty visual tricks and illusions involving colors, shapes, patterns, and perspective. 
Includes 3-D glasses and an answer key.

From Kirkus Reviews

An intriguing compilation of optical illusions: images that sort themselves out when studied or that can be read more than one way; op art; an Escher; pictures that gain a third dimension when viewed through the special glasses provided, etc. 
Several of these have appeared elsewhere, but it's instructive to have them together in this handy eight-inch square book--especially with Thomson's brief but lucid explanations of what is happening when the eye and mind try to decipher images that are designed to confuse them.
A dandy introduction to the concept of perception.

  •     I keep this book in the car ... my kids never tire of it (although we have lost a couple pair of the 3D glasses). It's a great alternative to electronics - and their friends love it too!
  •     Complete with 3-D glasses, this interesting book gives the reader a sampling of the variety of visual perceptual images that make the brain work in order to understand what we are seeing. Compact and brief, I believe Dr. Thomson illustrates how the eye and the brain make an effort to work together, yet sometimes face a battle! I recommend this enjoyable book, and plan to use it to introduce some of my students to how the eye see, and what the brain thinks.
