From stereoview cards to large-format IMAX films, 3-D technology's heightened realism and powerful visual allure have held audiences captive for over a century and a half. The technology, known as stereoscopy, creates an illusion of depth by presenting two slightly different images to the eye in print or on-screen. The advent of stereoscopic film technology excited both filmmakers and audiences, as a means of replicating all of the sounds, colors, movement, and dimensionality of life and nature for the first time.

Ray Zone (1947–2012) was an American film historian, author, artist, and pioneer in methods of converting flat images (in particular, comic books) into stereoscopic images. Starlog called him the "King of 3-D Comics", and Artsy Planet called him the "3D King of Hollywood". Zone attributed his interest in 3D to having read Mighty Mouse comic books in 3D at the age of 6, in 1953. He moved to Los Angeles in the early 1980s and began converting flat art to 3D images

From stereoview cards to large-format IMAX films, 3-D technology's heightened realism and powerful visual allure have held audiences captive for over a century and a half. The technology, known as stereoscopy, creates an illusion of depth by presenting two slightly different images to the eye in print or on-screen. The advent of stereoscopic film technology excited both filmmakers and audiences, as a means of replicating all of the sounds, colors, movement, and dimensionality of life and nature for the first time. The origins of 3-D film are often linked with a proliferation of stereoscopic films in the 1950s. By the time films like Man in the Dark and House of Wax was attracting large crowds, however, the technology behind this form of filmmaking was already over a century old. Stereoscopic Cinema and the Origins of 3-D Film, 1838–1952, examines this "novelty period" of stereoscopic film, charting its progression from Charles Wheatstone's 1938 discovery of 3-D to the 1952 release of Arch Oboler's innovative film, Bwana Devil. Stereoscopic specialist Ray Zone argues that the development of stereoscopic film can best be understood through a historical analysis of the technology rather than of its inventors. Zone examines the products used to create stereoscopic images, noting such milestones as David Brewster's and Oliver Wendell Holmes's work with stereoscopes, the use of polarizing image selection, and the success of twin-strip 3-D films, among others. In addition, Zone looks at the films produced up to 1952, discussing public reception of early 3-D short films as well as longer features such as Power of Love in single-strip anaglyphic projection in 1922 and Semyon Ivanov's 1941 autostereoscope Robinson Crusoe. He integrates his examination of the evolution of 3-D film with other cinematic developments, demonstrating the connection between stereoscopic motion pictures and modern film production. Stereoscopic Cinema and the Origins of 3-D Film, 1838–1952, is an exhaustive study of not only the evolution of 3-D technology and the subsequent filmmaking achievements but also the public response to and cultural impact of 3-D movies. Zone takes the reader on a voyage of discovery into the rich history of a field that predates photography and that continues to influence television and computer animation today.

Great look at this stage of the evolution of IR - Immersive Reality. I am currently doing a lot of work in VR and AR. This shows some of the background that leads up to our current technologies. The quest for "realism" is a continuous struggle including the discovery of Linear Perspective. This book is great in that it shows that the push for 3D realism goes back BEFORE photography, and was with motion pictures every step of the way. In short a great book.

Ray Zone must be the world's most expert writer on 3-D imaging. This book follows the twists and turns of three-dimensional projection (which began *before* 2-D "movie" projection!), examining patent applications and photographs, many taken by Zone himself. The only problem I had with this book is the fact that there are just so many ways to project 3-D, especially in the days before digital projection, and thus many of the instruments lovingly described in this book look pretty much alike. But just to see how, in 1834 (I believe), folks were chaining stereo views together and projecting them fairly successfully, is a tremendous surprise. This is only for hard-core 3-D enthusiasts, and you know who you are.

I used this book for an essay on the history of stereoscopes. I thought it was very interesting and useful, with good examples. I am going to give the book to a film major I know who is studying a similar topic.
