Stereoscopy Versus Paintings in the Victorian Era
Popular Victorian paintings were often reproduced as engravings, but photographers also recreated the scenes with actors, to produce stereoscopic cards for commercial sale. Originally published to accompany the exhibition at the Tate Gallery, this slipcased volume explores the relationship between paintings, popular illustrations and cartoons (such as those published in Punch), and 3D stereo photographs. It also includes a stereoscope to view the examples, which are mainly drawn from the collection of Queen guitarist Brian May.
