BOOK STEREOSCOPY SIGNED / BRIAN MAY AND DENIS PELLERIN / STEREOSCOPY: THE DAWN OF 3-D / DELUXE EDITION
This book tells the astonishing and sometimes controversial story of the birth of stereoscopy. A phenomenon we now call 3-D, stereoscopy fascinated Victorian society, in a similar effect to virtual reality today. Peering into a small, dark, magical box (a stereoscope!) an eager audience in the 1850s became transported into the immersive realism of 3-D. Through a stereoscope, they could experience the far-flung wonders of the world without ever leaving their fireside, as if they were amongst the Great Pyramids of Giza, looking up at the Matterhorn, or standing in the rice fields of China.
The Deluxe Edition of this book features a slip case, and is bound in red faux leather. The London Stereoscopic Company colophon is stamped in gold. The book is also signed by authors Denis Pellerin and Brian May.
