There's something really magical about a stereogram; in fact, these stunning designs practically come alive with movement. As they tease and surprise our brains, they teach us to look at things differently and make us aware of how our eyes play tricks on us. And, of course, they are simply beautiful to see. Through the power of illusion and the illustrator's skill, meaningless patterns and hidden objects on a 2-D page take shape and pop out in full, glorious, clearly defined 3-D. Images that were flat gain amazing dimension. These incredible, colorful, artistic creations offer unbelievable motion and depth.

Whether they're drawn from nature or art, optical illusions can amaze, amuse, confuse, and fool the viewer. They remind us that we do not see the world as it is, but only filtered through our own perceptions. This stunning collection captures the full breadth of the form, from composite images and trompe l'oeil to tricks of perspective and the absolutely impossible. There are ambiguous illusions with multiple meanings, depending on how you look, such as "Dance with Me": Can you see the ominous face gazing at a happy couple dancing among the trees? If you want to glimpse the magic in a topsy-turvy illusion, just rotate the page to reveal some hidden imagery. Viewed one way, "The Mysterious Island," painted by Hungarian artist István Orosz, shows a small ship sailing through an opening in some rocks. But turn it upside down and instead there's a portrait of the great author Jules Verne! And of course, there are illusions where things seem to be the same size when they're really not and others that seem to be in motion when, of course, they're completely still. From a twice-as-beautiful-as-one double rainbow to a fully intact wall that appears to have crumbled, these mysterious illusions will fascinate and enchant anyone who loves art, science, and magic. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A stereogram is a two-dimensional image that, when viewed properly, creates a stunning, almost magical impression of depth. Objects seem to float or to pop out of patterns. And these complex and sophisticated designs, produced by two of the most famous stereogram creators in the world, are state of the art. They’re simply among the most beautiful and amazing available today, combining different types of effects in a single picture. Sometimes, the trick to seeing the stereographic vision won’t be instantly obvious; you might need to stare at the picture for a while, adjust your gaze, or look slightly beyond the page before everything falls in line. The results are worth it--and once you’ve learned the technique, a whole world of art and spectacle will be yours.
