The Wizard of Op
Since I first borrowed it from my school library over twenty years ago I have had the images from Ed Emberley's The Wizard of Op (1975) stuck in my head. Part comic book, part Op art, what's not to love? I think it also paved the way for my eventual Magic Eye obsession. It's also maybe why I love other books full of psychedelic black and white illustration, like the Frank Asch book I shared previously. As far as I know The Wizard of Op is out of print, so if anyone reading this ever comes across a copy, please let me know! For the time being, at least I found some of the images through the magic of the Internet.
