When I was in the sixth grade, I saw a picture like the one shown in Figure 7-1 but couldn’t quite figure out what it was. After squinting at it for a while, I eventually figured it out. (Turn the book upside down, and view it from across the room. I won’t tell anyone.)
A photomosaic is an image split into a grid of rectangles, with each replaced by another image that matches the target (the image you ultimately want to appear in the photomosaic). In other words, if you look at a photomosaic from a distance, you see the target image; but if you come closer, you will see that the image actually consists of many smaller images.
