Nothing is quite what it seems in this brain-boggling collection of the best visual illusions.

Packed with more than 50 incredible illusions to trick your eyes and tease your mind, this interactive book comes to life with multiple pop-ups, spinners, tabs, and flaps.

Optical illusions confuse and confound us by deceiving our eyes and passing information to the brain on weird and wonderful sights that are not how they first appear to be. This guarantees hours of fun as you try to solve mirages and mysteries. Don’t worry if any of them really blow your mind because clear explanations reveal how and why all the illusions work.

Watch straight lines bend, see identical colors as different shades, observe printed pictures that float, and spot hidden images in Optical Illusions. Also included is an incredible 3D sculpture ready to assemble and baffle your brain as it seems to follows you wherever you go.

If you’re looking for more than meets the eye, then look no further.
