Enter the world of visual illusion and be guided by master artist, Sandro Del-Pretes through this mysterious, compelling landscape. His world-class works appeared in the best-selling "Masters of Deception" and like M.C. Escher, Del-Prete has devised a universe rich in impossible objects, optical deceptions, double perspectives, transformations, anamorphosis and much more. In this astonishing volume, he presents a complete range of his art, from lithographs to oil paintings and sculptures. Look closely inside a cage with two lovebirds to see all the elements merge into the shape of a girl's face. A series of seemingly endless towers pays homage to Escher. Expressive text accompanies each picture, opening a window into the work and illuminating Del-Prete's artistic choices.
