Embodied Visions: Bridget Riley, Op Art and the Sixties by Frances Follin (London: Thames & Hudson, 2004), £18.95.

A study of Riley's op art work from 1961 to 1965, discussing the multiple meanings of this work for contemporary critics and the public: fears and hopes about science in an increasingly technocratic society, desires for countercultural utopias, national identity issues, and relationships with other art, especially the legacy of Jackson Pollock.
