Perspective and Other Optical Illusions

by Phoebe McNaughton - £5.99  Wooden Books (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781904263616 | ISBN 10: 1904263615

Are things really smaller when they are further away? Can something be clearly visible but not there at all? Is it possible to have a direct and true experience of reality?
In this delightful and informative little book Phoebe McNaughton takes us on a classical journey through the history of artistic perspective, showing how the eye can be tricked and confused, the brain befuddled, and the philosopher inside all of us awakened by the nature of illusion.
