  1. Nice, although I could see most of it straight away I couldn’t wok out what the last letter of the top line was supposed to be until I saw it without the books!

    1. This IS a cool optical illusion, but reading your bookcase all day long doesn’t appeal to me.

  2. This is really awesome.I first thought the partitions for books were wierd.Walls were crossing each other perpedicularly and books placed haphazardly.It was nice but not that extraordinary.

    But when the books were removed,the message became so clear.It was amazing that the message stands out clearly even in the one with books

    Great job,Vurdlak

  3. I’m guessing it spells something. Not sure what exactly without yet looking at the solution, but pretty sure it says something.

  4. Maybe I’m looking at this wrong, but I still can’t make out any coherent letters. I mean, I see what could be I’s or 1’s, but that’s about it.

  5. I seen the message in the first pic, but
    I couldn’t figure out the last letter of
    the the top shelve.
    That’s really neat though

  6. Way too cool! It took me a while to see it If you are having trouble seeing it, move about 3 feet from your screen and look at the bottom shelf. Its dividers outline the block letters CASE. The rest is easy

  7. I like this an lot.
    I think you can get any letter of the alphabet you want, so you can make any words you want too. The down side is that they are £400 per letter making the one you see over £6000 :-(

  8. Great illusion! At first I thought it was a puzzle maze, then I caught sight of the last word ‘case’ had trouble with the last two letters in the first word ‘read’ lol, anyway awesome!!

  9. I have seen this illusion more than once, and I only figured it out now. It says: Read Your Book Case. Pretty neat. Make more, make more!
    I have a book case. No illusion, though.

    Smartguy confusion
    Smartguy learns!!!

  10. I think it might work as a subliminal message as well. I wonder if they can make one that says “Blow Me” instead.
