In Brian May’s own words and more than 300 previously unseen 3-D photographs, Queen in 3-D is an insider’s look at life with the rock band Queen, told for the first time. The pictures and self-penned text tell the story of Brian’s discovery of the world of stereoscopy as a boy, and chronicles Queen from the early 1970s to the present day. The images, from Brian’s personal archives, were taken using the various stereo cameras which Brian carried throughout his life. Viewed in May’s patented ULTRALITE OWL viewer (included), they leap into stunning three-dimensional realism, giving uniquely vivid impressions of life with Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor, John Deacon and Brian himself, alongside the people who helped to shape Queen’s amazing global adventure. Originally published in 2017 in a deluxe slip-cased edition, and then reprinted in 2019 in hardcover, Queen in 3-D has received glowing reviews from the press and broadcast media, as well as from countless music fans around the world who posted their kind comments online.
