Welcome to the Grand Illusion

Grand IllusionsTim Rowett has assembled one of the most fascinating websites in hyperspace. Our motto is "Bringing the Smart and the Useless Together" and Grand Illusions accomplishes the goal better than anyone. There are visually disturbing optical illusions, articles on creative experimentation and a quirky and fun mix of old and new toys. The curatorial skill make the site well worth visiting, but the little video demonstrations, done in a serious, dead-pan British style makes this one of my favorite sites. Check out the "Endless Spring" video and the Julain Beever drawings.

Much of what is on the site is simply an incredible labor of love and not for sale, luckily, some of the items are available - which makes this year's holiday shopping a breeze.
