Visual Illusions: Their Causes, Characteristics and Applications

by Matthew Luckiesh

Begin reading the book.

In 1922, Matthew Luckiesh wrote an optical illusions book titled - Visual Illusions: Their Causes, Characteristics and Applications. It was probably the first book to comprehensively cover the topic of Optical Illusions, or Visual Illusions, as they were called then.

Years of research preceded the writing of this optical illusions book. During those years the world became engulfed in "The Great War." Mr. Luckiesh worked on ways to camouflage our ships and airplanes using visual illusions. He dedicates a chapter to that topic.

On this optical illusion web site, we present this book to you, chock full of optical illusion information. It will be of interest to both the person who is fascinated by optical illusions and asks, "How do optical illusions work?" and also to the person doing serious research on the science of optical illusions. Some editing of the book has been done.
