Grades 5-8--In this treat for the eyes, the multiple ways that artists have used their skills to intrigue viewers unfold. On every page, there are examples of illusions that include hidden pictures, coded messages, or tricks with perspectives or color. The text invites readers to study the pictures carefully to appreciate these optical effects. It also provides brief anecdotal information on the artists. The works of Tiepolo, Hans Holbein the Younger, M. C. Escher, Salvador Dal', and Josef Albers, as well as other well-known abstract and representational artists, are included. The book is attractively formatted with clear, good-quality, color reproductions. The text is sparse but interesting, and the volume could serve as an introduction for casual browsing but not for report writing. Information on the illustrations is found on the back flyleaf, which may be a problem in some libraries.
