This is the story in words and pictures of the legendary band Queen, told by its founding member Brian May. 'This book contains a kind of Queen History, on and off stage, told in 3-D photographs. I just happened to carry a stereo camera of some kind all the way through Queen's journey through the '70s, '80s, '90s and... yes up 'til the present day. Apart from using them to make some stereo cards that we at the London Stereoscopic Company assembled and began offering for sale a couple of years ago. I just kept them tucked away in drawers, like one does. Until now'. Includes free OWL viewer.
There's no ghost writer for this book. Its just me. - Brian May
With these words, the author announces the first book ever to be published about the legendary rock band Queen by a member of the band. And certainly the first book of its kind in the world. Its a unique collection of original, highly personal snapshots of Queen in Three Dimensions, from the bands inception in the early '70s right up to the present day, accompanied by the exclusive recollections of founding member and lead guitarist, Brian May.
Brian's typically honest account of his experiences within and without the band, including many extreme highs and lows, bravely opens the door to his feelings, beliefs and motivations on this trip though an extraordinary life. This book will entrance millions of Queen fans; but it will also inspire anyone who wonders what they might learn from a man who used his intellect, musical talent, and ability to make the transition from college boy to rock star in just a few years, and then go on building creatively for the next forty!
"Only hours after rocking the stage on the opening night of his Australian tour, the 70-year-old music legend made a special afternoon appearance at Kinokuniya bookstore in Sydney in front of adoring fans.
He was warm and friendly, strolling through the eager crowd at the launch of his new book, Queen in 3D, and greeting everyone with a kind face and welcoming smile." - Journalist Candice Prosser reflects on meeting Brian May at the Queen in 3D event at Kinokuniya. Read the full article at ABC News

"This is the Victorian way of viewing 3D and it's still the best, to be honest," May told AAP on Thursday. Queen in 3D features never-before-seen pictures of the band taken by May from the 1970s to today using a 3D camera." - Queen's Brian May swaps strings for snaps in the West Australian
Brian May, founder, member, songwriter and guitarist with the rock band Queen, and co-creator of the internationally successful rock theatrical, We Will Rock You, is also a Doctor of Astrophysics, a leading campaigner for animal rights, and a lifelong 3-D photography enthusiast. Most recently, he has become a successful publisher, dedicated to sharing his vast collection of Victorian stereo photographs with the world through the books released by the London Stereoscopic Company (a fond recreation of the highly successful company of the same name founded in 1854). Brian currently tours with Queen for much of the year with Adam Lambert as lead vocalist, as well as composing, recording and performing in collaboration with West End star Kerry Ellis, an original luminary of the cast of We Will Rock You. His many other recent projects include working on 3-D 360-degree virtual reality movies, and the much-anticipated biopic of Freddie Mercury, which commences filming in September this year. Brian lives in London with his wife, his partner for over thirty years, actress Anita Dobson.
"[Queen in 3-D] captures the thrilling history of [Queen] with over 300 previously unseen stereoscopic photographs. (Stereoscopic, or 3-D, photography re-creates the illusion of depth by utilizing the binocularity of our vision.) The impressive book includes his own reflective narrative...and comes with an OWL 3-D viewer" -- Jeff Perlah "Newsweek"
