Rock star Brian May has designed a special Victorian Gem box for people interested in stereoscopy.
The Queen guitarist has long had an interest in stereoscopy, which is the Victorian art of 3D pictures. He is the owner of the London Stereo Company, which publishes stereoscopic work, and has designed a viewer to enable stereoscopic viewing.
Now London Stereo have released a Victorian Gems box containing a pack of 12 stereoscopic portraits of an Oxfordshire village taken in the 1850s by TR Williams, a pack of 12 diableries cards featuring ghoulish scenes from the 1860s, a pack of 12 Poor Man’s Picture gallery cards © Nikhil Rasiwasia /2016 Sony World Photography Awards imitating Victorian paintings, a booklet with a history of stereoscopy and a dedicated stereo viewer.
The Victorian Gems box is available price £95 but Black+ White Photography readers can buy one at the 10% discounted price of £85.50.
