BOOK REVIEW

HIDDEN PICTURES by Linda Bolton
NONFICTION
Released: March 1, 1993

"A provocative book that will get readers thinking about the art, as well as the fascinating visual trickery. (Nonfiction. 9+)"
Using 23 paintings and drawings from Western art—from the Renaissance to Picasso, Dali, and Escher—Bolton presents an intriguing survey of visual ambivalence: anamorphic art, read in a convex mirror (reflecting paper, to roll into a tube, is provided); images whose distorted perspectives are resolved by viewing from a particular angle (getting these right isn't easy; still, the point is adequately made); pictures in which one image coexists with another (a 16th-century painting of a man, entirely composed of animals).

BOOK REVIEW

NOW YOU SEE ME by S.J. Bolton
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 7, 2011

"Bolton (Blood Harvest, 2010, etc.) provides excruciating tension and much else. Romantics can drool over Jonesbury's turquoise eyes; amateur psychologists can mull Lacey's one-nighters; and Ripperologists can ponder theories of Jack's real identity, one of which helps tie up the plot."
