Most people assume 3D imaging is a modern innovation, but in fact it was developed in Scotland around 1850 and rapidly became a global craze. This unique book celebrates 170 years of Scottish stereoscopy and will be of interest to anyone passionate about Scotland or photography. Over 200 original antique 3D photographs from the author’s collection allow us to travel back in time and visit Scotland's famous sights, admire the picturesque scenery and meet the natives. Just like a Victorian tourist! On our tour of Scotland, we are accompanied by other travellers, whose commentary provides us with historical insight and amusing anecdote. We learn about Scotland's often gory history. Our literary companions include Burns, Scott and McGonagall, as we follow in the royal footsteps of Mary Queen of Scots and Queen Victoria, and meet local heroes from William Wallace and Robert the Bruce to Bill Shankly and Andy Murray. The book concludes with a history of stereoscopy and its development in Scotland, with concise biographies of some of the principal Scottish stereo-photographers. A nifty fold-out stereoscope is included to allow you to immerse yourself in Victorian Scotland in all its three-dimensional glory. Bon voyage! For further information visit
