Queen’s Brian May reveals plans to open museum for unique Diableries collection
31 October 2019 by Emmy Griffiths

“I’m founding what amounts to the first and only British museum and stereoscopic photography. I had it in my mind for a long time. There’s no museum dedicated to stereoscopy and it’s a rich treasure, a legacy of those glory days in the 1850s and 60s. I founded a charity called the London Stereoscopy Archive, which I hope will be enduring. It took about 18 months to get all of the legal stuff in place, but we now have it. It will be a physical collection that I hope lasts long after I’m gone!” – BRIAN MAY

Brian May completes stereoscopic ‘devil cards’ collection
28 October 2019 by Mark Brown

This week the book will be republished with a crucial update: the missing two cards.

“We are overjoyed. I don’t think we ever thought we’d get to this point, we thought it was a goner. I didn’t imagine we’d find the missing cards because we had already been looking for 30 years. The fact that the book was out there made all the difference, suddenly everyone was on the trail. We created detectives all round the world and that’s the reason these cards eventually turned up.”

“I think it must have been comforting for people to see people in Hell enjoying themselves. (Of the cards): “They are so delicate … You’ve only got to put your finger through them once and they’re dead.”  – BRIAN MAY

“The objects speak for themselves, the magic is so enchanting. And when you start to realise what we’re creating with these little masterpieces, you’re just overcome with awe.”

“There are thousands of hours going into digitally restoring them, because usually they come with quite a bit of damage and fading. We all spend a lot of time on Photoshop, day after day, week after week and month after month, restoring them to the beauty that they would have appeared in.” – BRIAN MAY
