You can fill a small library with books about Queen. But Queen in 3-D, which Brian May signs tonight (24 Aug), is not only the first book written by an actual member but the first to feature images of the band in 3-D.

Published by May’s London Stereoscopic Company, and accompanied by a nifty, yellow “OWL” stereoscope viewer, the 300-plus photographs were taken mostly by the legendary guitarist using a stereo camera and have never been seen. May traces the band’s entire existence with Freddie Mercury, as well as with Paul Rodgers and Adam Lambert, and captures everything from the group recording, touring, shooting videos and at awards shows to Mercury drinking wine in the back of a limo and sitting under a hair dryer at a Paris salon.
