Man, this is just about the best book that ever was. It's a kiddie book full of Op Art wonder. It's black and white but its magic makes your eyes feel funny. Wizard of Op, see? Shame there isn't a cover image so you can appreciate its glory.

Since there's no cover image here I felt obliged to add this link.
The artwork is amazing. I would buy it today if I could find it. The few times we went to the library as kids I would check this one out every time.
It's geared toward kids but the black & white geometrical optical illusions were fascinating.
the art was v. cool, but the story didn't work for me.
