In the Eye of the Beholder: The Science of Face Perception Review
(More customer reviews)Authors Bruce and Young introduce aspects of the science of perception with reference to works of art. The book is a delight to read, and almost as much fun to browse, because the numerous images lead the browser to puzzle over the demonstrated twists of perception. The authors take appropriate, detailed steps in explaining the physical and psychological path of seeing. Additionally, they show us the importance of totally contemporary, computer tools used in the exploration of human perception.
I found In the Eye of the Beholder in the library, read it almost without putting it down, and had to buy a copy for myself. I will certainly be showing it to my students in drawing and painting.
