Hidden Picture Puzzles

  • 995

By: Gianni A. Sarcone

A picture tells a thousand words . . . or does it?

These beautiful picture puzzles all contain a mystery: hidden or camouflaged figures that play tricks on your eyes. Some may blend into the background. One image may conceal another. Even though our brain tries to pinpoint and focus on the richly detailed designs, it just can’t. And because of their complexity, these illusions fascinate our eyes, stimulate our minds, and expand our imagination.

See the peaceful and pretty picture of a bonsai on a pedestal? Look more closely and you might discover an angry man and woman—and a little girl, too, outlined by the plant’s trunk and foliage. Or examine a lovely landscape of the African savanna, complete with a zebra standing in the foreground. But wait—is that one zebra? Two? Three?

The diverse puzzles each illustrate a different form of illusion. There’s even a crossword puzzle grid with a hiding place tucked inside. The accompanying captions explain the visual and psychological processes that allow these illusions to work—and make them endlessly compelling.
