Queen in 3-D: (3-D Stereoscopic Book) [9781999667429]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Many books have been written about Queen, but Queen in 3-D was the first intimate view from the inside by a founder band member; it was also the first history of any rock group ever to be created in 3-D. Not only did Brian May write the book (no ‘ghost writer’ here), but the 3-D illustrations were all captured with Brian’s stereoscopic cameras, mostly by the man himself.

From an early age Brian would travel with a stereo (3-D) camera in hand, so on Queen tours and during recordings he was able to capture rare behind-the-scenes moments of one of the world’s greatest rock bands. Some of the photographs had not even been fully processed until the book was in the making. The pictures were taken on stage; others behind the scenes, including informal shots taken on the road and during leisure time, giving close-up glimpses of the band as never seen before. Decades later these were shared for the very first time when Queen in 3-D published last year. It became an instant bestseller. Initially thought by Brian to be a quick job, this project turned into a labour of love for May and his team which spanned three years. Each time the book seemed to be close to completion, more 3-D photos were found in forgotten hiding places, prompting further memories and filling in the gaps in the narrative.

AND now, a year later, Brian has created more thrilling images to add to the band’s history and they are shared for the first time in this second edition of Queen in 3-D. Visiting the Bohemian Rhapsody set, Brian had his stereo camera to hand, and snapped away, capturing many intimate moments in the making of the forthcoming film in stunning 3-D. As with the first edition of the book, Brian narrates the stories behind each of these additional photographs through a lively, engaging prose, drawing the reader deeper into the image, the time and the space.

This is an important book, not only capturing the very essence of one of the world’s all-time greatest bands, but also exploring glimpses of the culture, politics and atmosphere of the many territories where Queen performed. Brian has created a text that chronicles changes in the music industry alongside major changes in the history of the world.

Bound in hard covers, this edition includes Brian May’s high-quality LITE OWL stereo viewer embedded in the backboard of the book, that will bring the captivating images to life. This new slick design from Brian is so small, thin and light that it can be slipped into a pocket or worn round the neck with a cord so that it is always at hand.
