The Art of Deception: Illusions to Challenge the Eye and the Mind is a new book edited by Brad Honeycutt. Brad is a graduate of Michigan State (Go Spartans!) and maintains a blog (anopticalillusion) devoted to optical illusions. A few of my designs have ended up on his site (see here for previous mentions of Brad on this blog), and now two of them have ended up in this book.

The books is beautifully done and features work by a range of internationally celebrated artists. The foreword is written by John Langdon and the epilogue by Scott Kim (may two of the best ambigram designers in the world). It is a truly an honor to have my work selected to be in this book. Here are a couple of images – one the cover and the other the pages devoted to two of my designs.
