This book presents a selection of brain-bending optical illusions featuring graphic art and photography by 60 artists, and includes an overview of the history of optical illusions in art. AUTHOR: Agata Toromanoff is an art and design historian. She has worked for collectors and galleries and has curated and managed various projects in the field of contemporary art and design.
