Description
It may be a trifle hard to believe, but one of the world's premier rock 'n' roll guitarists, Brian May of Queen, once had ambitions of being an astronomer—and indeed completed his PhD in 2006 and became an astrophysicist. Another of May's lifelong fascinations is stereoscopic photography, and here with photo conservator Elena Vidal he presents this fine slipcased photo album and viewer set, reproducing a singular series of stereoscopic views produced in the 1850s by one T.R. Williams. His Scenes in Our Village depicts an early Victorian Oxfordshire town, only recently identified as Hinton Waldrist, and the story of these remarkable images and their restoration is related here by May. The viewer itself is worth the price of the set—a durable, collapsible, adjustable frame that can allow you to view any published stereoscopic images.
