Masters of Deception

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

If you enjoy optical illusions and Trompe L'oeil painting as much as I do, you might like the 2004 publication from Sterling Publishing "Masters of Deception, Escher, Dali & the Artists of Optical Illusion" by Al Seckel.

You can order it from Amazon thru the Genii Forum for $24.95, (or about $16 for a "like new" copy). Enjoy the deceptive art, and be sure to turn to page 176 for the amazing portrait of Lennart Green which consists of symbols and numbers from a deck of playing cards!
