separationWhat is a "puzzillusion"?

Most people like solving puzzles or to be intrigued by optical illusions. Have you ever wondered what a mixture of those two would be like? Well, G. Sarcone has invented new optical illusions called "puzzillusions" that are not just there to be admired, but to solve! In short, puzzillusions are perception and counterintuitive visual puzzles that deceive the eye and our common sense. The main goal of those pleasant and funny 'experiments' is to teach the reader to sometimes distrust her/his own immediate senses and first impressions.
