AND YET IT MOVES! My new kindle book is live and only $5.15... 
The visual illusions featured in this intriguing ebook seems to move, wink, rotate, wobble, hover… Curiously enough, they aren’t animated gif but still images!
Precursor to the psychedelic movement and pop art, “op art” aims is to play with the perceptions of the spectators. This book contains a selection of original Sarcone’s op art works, authentic visual illusions that never are what they seem.
This entertaining book, divided into five sections showing different types of self-moving illusions, will alter your consciousness without drugs!

A "polyhedron compound of two cubes" is obtained by allowing two cubes to share opposite polyhedron vertices, and then rotating one a sixth of a turn about the axis that joins the two opposite vertices (see fig. 1 below).
As you can see from fig. 2, the two-cube compound is made up of 12 pyramidal modules. Each pyramidal module is composed of two right triangles with ratio 2:1 and one isosceles right triangle.

Story
Tagline
Puzzles & Mental Activities that Enhance Critical and Creative Thinking Skills!
Introduction
Mission
Gianni A. Sarcone and Marie-Jo Waeber have founded Archimedes’ Lab™ Project with a vision (maybe a utopian idea?) of:
• promoting the puzzle as an educational aid useful for training, socialization and communication. Games and puzzles can increase players' self confidence in their ability to apply knowledge to new situations. In the same way, players will learn the skills of collaborating, managing emotions, and resolving conflicts in groups;
• developing hands-on activities and puzzles that are engaging, affordable, and easy-to-use;
• creating new experiential-based teaching methods involving games and puzzles for teaching Mathematics and Science;
• encouraging integrated approaches to thinking and learning. Integrated approaches enable students to investigate a specific subject using many forms of knowledge and expression, by combining critical thinking, practical skills and topics from other subjects and by connecting the studied subject to their own lives and environment;
• fostering contacts and collaboration among puzzle enthusiasts, and persons or industries involved in education and entertainment world-wide.
The Site
Archimedes-lab.org is a free and collaborative edutainment website developed and maintained by Gianni A. Sarcone and Marie-Jo Waeber, two authors with more than twenty years of experience in the fields of visual thinking and education. The main goal of the site is to popularize math through puzzles and games.
Archimedes-lab.org is divided into three main categories: puzzles & tests, illusions & paradoxes, oddities & curiosities. Among the proposed educational things, visitors will find number games, riddles, puzzles with downloadable pieces, perception puzzles and interactive optical illusions. A principal objective throughout the site is the enhancement of critical thinking skills. Here’s a quote from Scientific American (May 27, 2003): "This virtual lab borrows the empirical spirit and creative curiosity that Archimedes brought to his work and invites visitors to explore with the same expectations for mind-blowing discovery."
