The best word to describe The Magic of 3D Photography is FUN. This highly illustrated book takes you on a journey from the birth of photography in the 1800s, through the 3D movie craze of the 1950s, right up to the newest digital 3D technologies. This inviting, interactive book is not only fun, but also a well-researched history of one of our most intriguing forms of communication. It is not only about 3D, but the book is in 3D. The Magic of 3D Photography is designed for young readers (ages 8-14), but anyone with a curious mind and an interest in 3D will enjoy it.
