A book you will geniunely enjoy

I noticed that a previous reviewer gives Colorful Illusions as a frequent gift. I do too! The book is a skillful blend of art book, puzzle book, gift book and educational book (but don't tell my children!). We learned a little about how colors can trick your eyes and we enjoy going back and forth over the puzzles. Very artistic, not at all your usual black and white slap-dash illusion book. It is really a book of art. I was also attracted to the easy-to-follow writing, I think Aki Nurosi is a genuine talent and my family looks forward to more books.

A full-color beauty -- a grand gift

I was actually at a museum when I found Mr. Nurosi's book. The cover of Colorful Illusions drew me in, very attractive. The premise is that of an art book which uses its complex color arrangements to become a puzzle book as well. Very attractive. I was also drawn to the deceptive simplicity of the writing. My 8-year-old daughter navigated the puzzles rather easily, and came to understand the finesse of color illusion as well. I can not say enough superlatives about this attractive volume. Read it and have fun learning! It will be a staple on my gift-giving lists for years to come. Thank you.

Very fun and very tricky book

I like this book a lot and it is tricky and I got fooled on different parts.I like the colors and my parents use it and look at it and they like it to.

its not just for kids

i didn't know what this was at first, an art book or a brain twister or a lesson in how color works. it's all three, and i like going over and over through the pages. very beautiful. it's so much more than a kids' book. i've been giving it as gifts since i found it last fall. pay attention, a book can be all of the above.

This is one beautiful, tricky book

Entertaining and beautiful, with clear explanations. I thought this would only be a book of illusions. So I started reading it and found myself paused by the real beauty of this book. It's so attractive, page after page. I teach elementary school students and brought the book to my class. They were captivated, and I was impressed by how easy it was to read and follow. The writer really explains, in clear language, how color tricks the eye. A few teachers borrowed it for themselves, and got just as much out of it. Children and adults. Entertaining and beautiful. Art and writing really working together. That's the measure of a great book. I recommend Colorful Illusions.
