A new brainteaser is putting people’s perception skills to the test, challenging viewers to spot a hidden book in under 20 seconds.

The image, which contains images of various electronic gadgets, was inspired by the increasing dominance of technology in our lives.

The illustration was done by London-based educational company Edu Prints Plus.

The creators have found that the hidden item can be located within five seconds, but how long will it take you?

Can you find the hidden book?

Observant puzzlers will spot that the book is hiding towards the top right corner of the picture with the book mark hanging out.

Speaking of his love of books, Edu Prints Plus founder Faisal Naisim said: “I love a brain teaser like this – something that helps you keep your vision sharp and puts your perception skills to the test.”

“And in a world where it feels like technology is taking over absolutely everything, I get real joy out of picking up a physical book and casting aside my phone or tablet for an hour or two. That's really the inspiration around this puzzle.”
