Queen guitarist Brian May will publish “Queen In 3-D” on May 25.
“Finally! After 3 years of building, our very first LSC (London Stereoscopic Company) book of 21st century photography is almost ready to be sent off to the printers,” explains May. “And the photographer is me, and the pictures are of a rock group that began to work on making a vision come true around 1970.
“Queen In 3-D! Off stage, on stage - on tour, off tour - in the studio, in the snow, in the sunshine, in the rain - in the pink and in the blue. But always in depth! Stereoscopic memories, and my own personal recollections that go with them.
“This should reach a bookstore near you around the end of May,” he adds. “It will have an OWL viewer included of course… in a special secret exclusive new colour! The gnomes are on it!”
“Queen In 3-D” marks the first time the band’s history has ever been documented in 3-D, with never-before-seen images from May’s personal collection providing a uniquely intimate view of the legendary group.
May’s London Stereoscopic Company is a fine-art publishing company with a mission to share the wonders of the world’s greatest 3-D images, from Victorian times to the present day.
News of the 3D book project comes on the heels of last month’s Japan-exclusive release of Queen and Adam Lambert’s “Live In Japan.”
The multi-format package captures the band's headline performance at the country's largest rock festival, Summer Sonic, on August 17, 2014 at Chiba’s Marine Stadium.
