The art in the book is so amazing, it has all types of art and it's so trippy!
It's certain to be a conversation spark, and as soon as someone puts on the glasses and opens the book...YOWZA...you'll understand what all the fun's about.
Art has become a contemporary entertainment medium, no longer relegated to stuffy museums...think Banksy. Today art is an interactive medium and that doesn't all have to happen online...here's a case where you can actually interact with a book...go ahead, reach out and touch the art...you won't believe your eyes.
I think the book and its marketing are actually a unit interactive modern art installation, another retreaded commentary on mass production. The function of this piece is to engage slob Americans like myself to juggle this book and some ZERO Bars and a big Powerade and some Rolos and stuff in their arms at one of those robot self-checkout lines. Meanwhile the book's compilers are hacked into store surveillance whilst they giggle and laugh and stack up big piles of cash to spend on Clubmasters or whatever. The ruse of giving lower beasts the gift of vision across dimensions of space is a little mechanical in its formula for irony. But all the same, this Möbius strip of materialism is beautiful in its transcendence of dimensions of not only space, but also time. 5 Stars.
In fact, I gave up even trying to look at the images about 1/3 of the way through the book, and simply put it on the shelf. Can you return a 3D book that's not 3D?
Now, I'm not one of these picky collectors who's looking for perfection. I have plenty of 3D books with some ghosting, and I enjoy them anyway. This book, tho, is a total lost cause. Shame, cause it was a great idea.

There are other good ones in the book, but they are hampered with the issues mentioned above, which hurts their 3D appearance. Would I recommend this tome to 3D collectors? Sure, but don't expect a masterpiece that will mesmerize your eyes in dimensional wonder. Most will hurt them instead, with the few exceptions I listed above.
