A new video – Brian May unwrapping the new – forthcoming – “Queen In 3-D” book. Starring Brian May. Filmed by Denis Pellerin. Part 1: When Brian sees his stereoscopic masterpiece for the first time. [Read on below]
[Part 2 when book is launched]
I feel like it’s Christmas because yesterday [23 April] the first copy of Golden Days came along and we were able to actually unwrap it. The album that me and Kerry Ellis have made over the last couple of years.
Today [24 April] arrives in the post this, which is also a very long term project. At least three years we spent on this and I must say I’m thrilled to hold this. It’s very heavy but there’s a lot in here folks. This is “Queen In 3-D” and really it chronicles in snapshots the whole of our history – and in fact almost the whole of my history back to being a kid when I first found the 3-D cards in Weetabix.
So it’s a story of 3-D and stereoscopy, but also of the band that we called Queen and we worked in this band for more years than I can count really.
Finally I can unwrap it, so I thought I would share the unwrapping with you and show you how it works. Okay, no batteries needed.
You can see there’s more than one thing in here. There’s more than just a book. There is an OWL envelope in here and I’ll show you what that all means.
So using the fingernail carefully, see if I can get into this thing. There we are. Amazing, amazing, amazing. Feels good, smells good. All shiny and new.
Front cover has a lenticular picture of Freddie on, and that’s one kind of 3-D. Doesn’t need any batteries. Doesn’t need any viewer and you can probably see, even in mono, the fact that it’s, well, 3-D, so should look good in the book shops and this lovely foil stuff is great. You would swear this is embossed because it looks very 3-D in itself, but our lovely people in China have managed to do this on foil.
