A connoisseur of visual conundrums, Al Seckel presents more than 275 optical illusions that appear to change before your eyes. Here are such well-known images as Shepard's tabletop, Wade's spiral, Ames room, and Rubin's face/vase, and many lesser-known, but no less effective, illusions. The illustrations also include art by mind-bending masters like Arcimboldo, M.C. Escher, Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, and Hans Holbein. Here too are a broad array of impossible shapes, stereo illusions, ambiguous figures, depth perception oddities, and trompe l'oeil effects.
