Stereo Book

Stereo Book

Aug 31, 2011

I’m planning to publish a photobook with my stereo 3D pictures. And I’m looking for partners.

Here is the plan.

For a past 2 years I’ve accumulated enormous amount of stereo photos from all around the Finland. Now it is time to make a nice book out of all these stuff. This will not be first 3D book in the world, but likely first in Finland.

The idea is to print red-cyan anaglyph pictures. This way the reader will be able to enjoy printed images with a pair of red-cyan cardboard glasses. The glasses will also be included with the book. I’ve done tests before, and it seems that this is working pretty well.

The book title will be Stereo Finland. The idea is to group all those pictures from around the country into a chapters. I have pictures from Helsinki, Tampere, Turku, Oulu, Jyväskylä, Porvoo, Hämeenlinna, Pori, and a dozen of other places. I have also pictures from various events. Like Tampere Air Show in 2010. All my pictures are available on Flickr in this collection:

Layouts for the book will be done in November. I’d like to have it printed prior to the Christmas.

References. So far I’ve held in my hands two stereo 3d photobooks. Here is one:

They all have pair of cardboard glasses included, and all work pretty well.

I have some experience in doing photobooks. Last year I made a photobook called Sky Finland. Here it is on Blurb:

This book was a major success. I sold something like 2 pieces of it on Blurb shop.

So, if you are interested in supporting this idea, let me know. If you are a publisher, we could publish this thing together. If you want a printed book, I can spare one for you when those are out.

Have a great day.
