Queen in 3-D: Book signing with Brian May
Friday 26th May 18:00 at Waterstones, London – Piccadilly
Queen in 3-D (Hardback)
Waterstones Piccadilly is delighted to welcome Queen guitarist Brian May to sign copies of his new book, Queen in 3-D, a stereoscopic masterpiece capturing the legacy of Queen through the rock star’s own 3-D camera lenses.
Many books have been written about Queen, but this is a first – an intimate view from the inside by a founder band member; it’s also the first history of any rock group ever to be created in 3-D. Not only has Brian May written 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. Decades later these are now being shared for the very first time. Some of the photographs had not even been fully processed until the book was in the making. 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. The book eventually became a compelling set of snapshots of Brian’s life and the life of Queen, over more than 50 years.
