DIABLERIES – Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell
In France, around 1860, from the loins of a traditional national fascination with all things diabolical, was born a new sensation — a series of visionary dioramas depicting life in a strange parallel universe called ENFER — Hell — communicated to an eager audience by means of stereoscopic cards, to be viewed in the stereoscopes which had already become popular in the 1850s.
This 3-D phenomenon, which fascinated a nation for 40 years, is now yours to share.
