Nicolus Roukes has another book out besides Art Synectics--it is called
Design Synectics and it is equally good.

>> Hi, Ken.......Thank you 4 responding to my posting. I've kinda been left on

>> and the toilet paper roll (though I don't discount its interesting merits,
>> rest assured). I really wanted to carry it a little further.

>> I had a couple of listerv friends mention the book HIDDEN PICTURES which
>> again dwells on the cylinder thingy. On my own I stumbled across, just in
>> the last two weeks, a good book called OPTICAL ILLUSIONS IN ART in the
>> children's section of BARNES AND NOBLE BOOKSTORE in Cal.(it's at school so
>> I can't give you the ISBN # at the moment). It has a small grid ala
>> Holbein's grid. (BTW...midway through this process, I discovered how
>> Holbein designed his grid using perspective.) I blew it up on copy machine
>> quardruple-time and pieced together til I wound up with something large
>> enough to fill a 18x24" paper. I made a few of these grids on matboard and
>> cut out to use for stencils for the kids. Students just trace around and
>> made markings around edges and later go back in and fill in the grid VERY
>> lightly. The first square grid they copy their drawing from can be from any
>> sized square. It works1 You can view their drawings/paintings from one side
>> of the room (from right OR left depending how you place your grid before
>> you start).
>>
>> I know there is another book out there called ANAMORPHIC ART by a french
>> author which has been translated to English and costs $75. BARNES & N. said
>> they would order it for me but that I wouldn't be charged for it if I
>> didn't want it and they would put it on their shelf or return it to
>> manufactor. In any case, I ordered it and it hasn't come in yet but I'm
>> curious to see what it has to say.
>>
>> The video MASTERS OF ILLUSION is a super tie-in and lead-up-to-project.
>>
>> I've spend hours and hours at the county library and two local university
>> libraries and everywhere information has been bone-dry on this subject.
>>
>> If you have anything to add to what I've been able to find, I would really
>> appreciate hearing from you. I'd really like to hear from you regardless
>> and find out just what you have done with this fascinating art!! Lookin'
>> forward to your reply! Cya..........
