AND YET IT MOVES! - My new kindle book is live at only $4.72.
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!
