An exclusive 3D presentation and lecture to celebrate the publication of the London Stereoscopic Company's Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell by Dr Brian H May CBE, Denis Pellerin and Paula Fleming.
The authors - led by Queen guitarist, astronomer and photo-historian Brian May - will present a Gothic Victorian underworld of temptation, seduction, retribution and devilish fun brought alive in colour and 3D. Learn about the origins and hidden meanings of these rare 1860s French photographs which depict an imaginary underworld populated by devils, satyrs and skeletons.
Put on your 3D glasses and prepare to be surprised!
The evening will also provide an opportunity to buy copies of the book and to have them signed by the authors.
The lecture and book signing will take place at RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AD. Doors open from 6.15pm. There is no hospitality provided.
This will be the first opportunity to hear the fascinating story of the diableries and to purchase the book which is published on Halloween, 31 October. The book is 280 pages with 500 photographs in colour and black and white and comes complete with an OWL stereo viewer designed by Brian May. www.londonstereo.co.uk
