Summary "Three-dimensional stereoviews were popular in Europe and America in the mid-19th century. This book unearths the stereograph as an artistic medium and explores the subjects, composition, lighting, tonality, blocking and depth that make the best images so compelling. The best practitioners, like film directors or television producers, fused artistry with commercial appeal"-- Provided by publisher.
