Masters of Deception: Escher, Dali, and the Artists of Optical Illusion

Masters of Deception: Escher, Dali, and the Artists of Optical Illusion by Al Seckel

An interesting view of a fair number of artists who engage in trompe l'oeil, double images, impossible perspective, and a lot of other optical tricks. One even works in fonts to produce such things as "Teach" that is reflected as "Learn". Also sculptures that produce shadows or reflections that reveal the significance, or -- from the right angle -- show "impossible" perspective.
