Rate this:
Play with perception and explore the way your brain and eyes work with these dozens of full-color optical illusions. Each is presented with a fascinating, reader-friendly explanation of how it works. You'll find items that appear to be dissimilar yet are actually identical, pictures that play with foreground and background to represent different images, stationary objects that appear to be moving, and architectural illusions. Locate and experiment with your eyes' blind spots. Assemble a monster that seems to watch you as you walk past it. Solve picture puzzles, find hidden figures, and look at items that aren't really there. Examine the phenomenon of simultaneous contrast, which makes colors that are the same appear to be different hues, and that of neon illumination, which creates striking color effects. A true feast for the eyes and mind, these challenging visuals are guaranteed to astound and amaze you.
