Pop-Up 3D
Discover Phantograms, Fantastic & Fun Natural 3D Pop-Ups
by Barry Rothstein, Steve Hughes & Steve Boddy

The book's cover is not a 3D image. It is however the right-eye half of a phantogram. It differs from a normal photograph in that the narrowing effects of perspective have been reversed out.

This is a book of phantorams for children 3-99, and has developed a strong following. 8-1/2" x 11" in size and featuring thirty-two pages of 3D wonder, the images are enjoyable for all ages. The text is geared for ages 10 and up, describing the basic nuts & bolts of how 3D imagery works. Almost all of the images are viewed with standard red-cyan 3D glasses (2 pairs are provided with the book).

While principally introducing its readers to phantogram imagery, there are also opportunities to free view stereo pairs, and contrast the differences between traditional 3D and phantograms. Finally Pop-Up 3D encourages it readers to try 3D imagery for themselves, pointing out a tutorial on this site and a link to a free download of StereoPhoto Maker.

It begins with a wonderful two-page spread of drawn phantograms by Steve Hughes, and includes some amazing photographic phantograms by Steve Boddy.

Phantograms from Nature, Western USA
by Barry Rothstein

The book's cover is not a 3D image. It is however the right-eye half of a phantogram. It differs from a normal photograph in that the narrowing effects of perspective have been reversed out.

Other than the model of the cover (above left), the images above are examples of pages in the book. With 3D red-cyan anaglyph glasses you should be able to get a taste of what they provide, but nothing near the impact of the large printed images. These phantograms are actually made to be viewed from above at an angle, and not straight on.

This book is full color in 11" x 14" format, and features thirty-two anaglyph phantograms of nature’s beauty taken in natural settings around the western United States. In addition are instructional pages on how to take phantograms outdoors in natural settings. The images are viewed with standard red-cyan 3D glasses (2 pairs are provided with the book).

A phantogram is an optical illusion, a special class of 3-dimensional photography. Phantogram images miraculously rise off the printed pages, perfectly realistic phantoms of the real subjects photographed. The illusion is accomplished by the systematic mimicry of normal vision.

"It's difficult not to reach out to try to touch them (almost everyone does). The WOW effect is practically universal, both for adults and kids."

Crossview 3D
Compiled by Barry Rothstein
Introduction by Ray 3D Zone
and showcasing the work of an all star cast of twenty-six 3-D artists

Following our continued obsession to expose the public to the very best in 3-D, this first-of-its-kind book teaches readers how to crossview a stereo pair, providing those who dare to try the holy grail of 3-D: great stereo images with no loss of color, and entirely viewer free. Crossviewing is not new, but very few people are aware of it outside the 3-D community.

But crossviewing is only the icing on the cake for this book. It showcases some of the best 3-D images ever created by an all-star cast of 3-D image makers: Achim Bahr, Robert Bloomberg, Oliver Dean, Abe Fagenson, Larry Ferguson, John Hart, Steve Hughes, David Kesner, Tom Koester, Claudia Kunin, David Kuntz, Franklin Londin, Jim Long, Greg Marshall, Phyllis Maslin, Jerry Oldaker, Abe Perlstein, Susan Pinsky, Barry Rothstein, Chris Schneberger, David Starkman, James Staub, Dale Walsh, Owen Western, Terry Wilson, and Ray Zone
