The Art of Seeing

ArtOfSeeing
I stumbled across this book by Huxley, as most do who study visual communication, and was fascinated by his views on learning to see empirically. I did also get quite a good laugh out of some of the other ideas like “palming” and “sunning”, which is essentially rubbing your eyes and starring at the sun to make your eyes work better. I’m no optometrist so I could be wrong, but these both sound like bad ideas. Since the book is 70 years old there seems to be some pdf copies of it floating around on the internet, though there is nothing better than a print copy 😀
