The Redstone Book of the Eye - Penguin Books

As we look at the world the eye seeks meaning, searches for the familiar. ‘I see!’ we say when the penny drops, when things make sense. Then we smile –­ for the mind enjoys the eye surprised. But when it encounters things odd and unexpected, it is stopped in its tracks. The Redstone Book of the Eye confounds expectations and counters the familiar. It will excite the eye: make you look again, see things anew, tease the mind and make you smile.
