As we look at the world, the eye seeks meaning, searching for the familiar. When it encounters something odd or unexpected, we are stopped in our tracks. This brilliant compendium of images from art, graphic design, film and photography explores the way the eye perceives - and is deceived. With contributions from Bridget Riley, Grayson Perry and Saul Steinberg, its patterns, puzzles and visual puns will confound expectations, raise a smile and refresh the imagination.
