Synopsis

My Big Book of Art and Illusion by Silke Vry

With dozens of beautiful reproductions and an engaging, informative text, this children's book is a fascinating look at artistic illusions through the ages. From mural paintings dating back to Pompeii through examples from nearly every modern movement, Silke Vry shows how artists fool their audiences with visual tricks, puns and hidden clues. In addition, she shows kids how to entertain their friends with optical projects they can create at home. For the curious young reader, this compelling book will provide hours of amusement and wonder.
