This collection of masterpieces of the art of illusion will delight and entertain readers of all ages. Children love illusions - and artists are some of the greatest tricksters around! This collection features artworks that incorporate a variety of methods for tricking our eyes: including trompe l'oeil, clever uses of colour and perspective, Surrealism, and Photo-Realism.

Arranged thematically, each work is presented in a 2-page spread with 50 colour illustrations. Lively texts explain the methods the artists employed to shape their illusions. Reproduced in vibrant colour, these pieces of ripe fruit, blooming flowers, a half-opened curtain, flickering lines, and impossible worlds come alive on the page, providing hours of absorbing fun as readers are drawn into the stories behind their creation. Playful, intriguing, and educational, these great illusions are a terrific way to introduce children to the world of art!

Hardcover containing 48 pages.
