Perception is about the reception, selection, acquisition, transformation and organization of sensory information. This book, originally published in 1976, discusses a number of aspects of human perception within a theoretical framework in which man is considered as a processor of information. The main emphasis is on visual perception with particular reference to looking and pattern recognition; selective listening and speech recognition are also discussed.

David Legge

David Legge has been a professional illustrator since 1986. He has produced over seventy book jackets, illustrations for packaging and advertising and is a regular illustrator for The School Magazine. After emigrating to Australia from England in 1989 David developed a love of children’s picture books which is now his favorite field of illustration.

David strives to instill warmth and humour into his picture books which he reflects, are the two things that fill his own childhood memories.

Since 1994 he has visited schools, libraries and literary festivals all over Australia. With a background of teaching illustration and design as a TAFE tutor, and a regular speaker at the Art Gallery of NSW, he feels confident to talk to any age group from Kindergarten to adult.

His sessions hope to take away the mystery of illustration, include lots of preparatory work, finished illustrations and hands on drawing.
