Pages: 320

Rings of seahorses that seem to rotate on the page. Butterfliesthat transform right before your eyes into two warriors with theirhorses. A mosaic portrait of oceanographer Jacques Cousteau madefrom seashells. These dazzling and often playful artistic creationsmanipulate perspective so cleverly that they simply outwit ourbrains: we can?t just take a quick glance and turn away. Theycompel us to look once, twice, and over and over again, as we tryto figure out exactly how the delightful trickery manages to foolour perceptions so completely. Of course, first and foremost, everypiece is beautiful on the surface, but each one offers us so muchmore. From Escher?s famous and elaborate ?Waterfall? to ShigeoFukuda?s ?Mary Poppins,? where a heap of bottles, glasses, shakers,and openers somehow turn into the image of a Belle Epoque womanwhen the spotlight hits them, these works of genius will provideendless enjoyment.
