Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0224086863, Paperback)

A stunning compendium of visual delight from the Redstone Press, culled from a lifetime's collection of beautiful, strange, surprising, and intriguing images, with an introduction by artist David Shrigley
Confounding expectations and countering the familiar, here is a collection of extraordinary images to excite the eye, tease the eye, see things anew, and make readers smile. As we look at the world the eye seeks meaning, searches for the familiar. "I see!" we say when things make sense.Featuring previously unpublished "found" images and visual conundrums, this celebration of the visual world includes such contributors as Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Saul Leiter, Grayson Perry, Bridget Riley, James Rosenquist, Ed Rushca, and Saul Steinberg.
