They defy the rules of space, but captivate the mind

An Impossible Staircase" goes up and down endlessly, with no highest or lowest step. How is that possible? And take a look at a very unique elephant: would it have trouble walking on its d legs?

We are like Rottentomatoes or Metacritic for books. We also do book giveaways. How is that possible? And take a look at a very unique elephant: would it have trouble walking on its d legs? From the strangely three twisted rings in "Cosmic Wheels" to a meandering Celtic knit that you can try to untie, all the images are mind-boggling. Published August 1, 2005 by Sterling. 96 pages Genres: Arts & Photography, Science & Math.

Alfred Paul "Al" Seckel (September 3, 1958 – 2015) was an American collector and popularizer of visual and other types of sensory illusions, who wrote books about them. Seckel was born September 3, 1958 in New York City, New York to Paul Bernard Seckel, a German-born painter and graphic artist, and Ruth Schonthal, a German-born pianist and classical composer. His mother was a refugee from the Nazis. Seckel was raised in a Jewish household.

Al Seckel is the author of "Super Visions: Ambiguous Optical Illusions" (1402718292) and "Super Visions: Action Optical Illusions" (1402718284).

Inside the covers of this incredible, colourful collection are hundreds of the world's most powerful optical illusions. Other ambiguous illusions feature two subjects in one and images like "The Impossible Terrace," which couldn't exist off the page: just try to figure out if you're viewing the space from above or below. Every one is astonishing.

An optical illusion is an illusion caused by the visual system and characterized by a visual percept that arguably appears to differ from reality

An optical illusion is an illusion caused by the visual system and characterized by a visual percept that arguably appears to differ from reality. Illusions come in a wide variety; their categorization is difficult because the underlying cause is often not clear but a classification proposed by Richard Gregory is useful as an orientation. An example for a physiological fiction is an afterimage. Three typical cognitive distortions are the Ponzo, Poggendorff, and Müller-Lyer illusion. Physical illusions are caused by the physical environment, . by the optical properties of water.

They defy the rules of space, but captivate the mind. Most of these visions can't exist in the real world--only here, where artists play with perspective in the most remarkable ways. "An Impossible Staircase" goes up and down endlessly, with no highest or lowest step. How is that possible? And take a look at a very unique elephant: would it have trouble walking on its unusually-constructed legs? From the strangely three twisted rings in "Cosmic Wheels" to a meandering Celtic knit that you can try to untie, all the images are mind-boggling.
