3-D Atlas of the Stars and Galaxies
by Richard Monkhouse, John Cox 

Provides three comprehensive full sky map sequences, each including 3-D sterographs, derived from the most accurate distance data available. Includes the results produced by the Hipparcos satellite, which made between 100 and 150 separate observations of more than 100,000 stars to determine their parallax.

3D Wings: Fabulous Flying Machines
by Rick Sammon

This fun, fact-filled book offers children the opportunity to find out what life was like in the early days of aviation. Combining clear, informative prose and striking 3D images of such early planes as the Red Baron's Fokker DR-I triplane and the "Flying Razor," this book invites readers to take a trip back to the days when pilots were daredevils and heroes, and even watching takeoffs was a thrill.

Big Trucks and Diggers in 3-D
by Mark Blum

The bucket of a backhoe swoops toward you. A disk plow sweeps across fields. You can almost smell the hot asphalt being laid down by the paver in this exciting 3-D book. Stereoscopic photography has been around for more than 100 years, and it hasn't lost it's capacity to amaze both children and adults. Look through the stereoscopic glasses--built right into cover so they can't get lost--and view these massive building machines in all their glory.

Mark Blum has published a range of exciting 3D-books about Nature. Photography and 3D-effects are always superb and so this book will definitely be no exception!


Eye and Brain

5 Stars

This book discusses the physiological and psychological aspects influencing the functioning of the eye and brain in perception.

This is one of the best popular science books around. It's so well written and interesting that it will delight lay readers as well as its intended student audience.

Eye, Brain, and Vision
by David H. Hubel

5 Stars

An illustrated account of the nature of vision and of how scientists have discovered what is now known, down to the cellular level, about how the brain processes visual form, colour, depth and movement.

The book features many stories of scientific discoveries in the field.

Human Engineering in Stereoscopic Viewing Devices (Advances in Computer Vision and Machine Intelligence)

by Daniel B. Diner, Derek, H. Fender
Infinite Perspectives : Two Thousand Years of Three-Dimensional Mapmaking
by Brian M. Ambroziak, Jeffrey R. Ambroziak

Those who are expecting just another coffee-table book with a few magnificent photographs, are in for a most pleasant surprise.

From the first page, this work brilliantly illuminates mans' struggle to comprehend the subtleties of his world. Some of the most elegant illustrations depict the fantastically abstract manner that various cultures have used to navigate the sea and to map the ground. Of course, the real intrigue of this book derives from the extraordinary three-dimensional photographs that the authors produced and liberally provided--from San Francisco to the Grand Canyon and on to Mars.

For those who trudge through concrete and steel all too often, the Ambroziaks have provided welcome repose with a new lens on creation and all of its grandeur. 

Natural History of Vision, A
by Nicholas J. Wade
5 Stars

"An absolutely marvelous and unique history of the psychology, physiology, anatomy, and physics of vision from the earliest times, presented almost entirely in the words and illustrations of the original thinkers." -- Charles G. Gross, Department of Psychology, Princeton University

This illustrated survey covers what Nicholas Wade calls the "observational era of vision," beginning with the Greek philosophers and ending with Wheatstone's description of the stereoscope at the end of the 1830s (after which vision became an experimental science). Although there are other histories of vision, this is the first to present extracts of the works of scholars, organized both topically and chronologically. In what has become the author's signature style, the book juxtaposes verbal and visual descriptions. Many of the over three hundred illustrations are derived from engravings--of portraits of the scholars cited, as well as of scientific diagrams.

Each portrait appears beside a significant quotation by the scholar, along with the dates of birth and death, and the source of the original illustration. The author's commentary provides the context for the quotations and traces the scientific development within each topic. The book is organized around the principal topics within the investigation of visual phenomena: light, color, subjective visual phenomena (such as afterimages and pattern distortions), motion, binocularity, space, and visual illusions.

This is one of the greatest books if you wish to go back to the roots of Vision. Absolutely essential reading when you are want to obtain in-depth knowledge of stereoscopic vision.

Also available as a softcover issue.
