About the Author

James Taylor is a teaching fellow in the Philosophy Department at Boston College, USA. His main areas of expertise are Ricoeur, Foucault, Heidegger and Gadamer.


"... A wealth of visual material within quite a slim volume in a way that complements the text so well." --The International Journal of Maritime History
"The color illustrations--mostly early 20th Century paintings--will enamor sailors, historians, artists, designers and anyone else dazzled by design (popularized as Op Art in the 1960s)." --Military Times
"Taylor's detailed account of Dazzle, his careful selection of photographs, illustrations, and paintings, all printed and bound in a beautiful book is essential for anyone interested in the history of naval deception, World War I navies, or the rare but respected breed who enjoys the intersection of war and art." - Center for International Maritime Security (CIMSEC)
"James Taylor's [book] is the colorfully illustrated story of Wilkinson's invention of a camouflage scheme for ships during World War One that was intended to confuse the submarine officers who needed to know a target's location and course before firing torpedoes; it was an ingenious creation, echoed today in modern art and clothing." --The Red Crew
"Those who regard dazzle more as an art form may well find this an interesting read." --Warship, as part of the publication's Naval Books of the Year
