The July 23rd presentation by Brian May and Elena Vidal of A Village Lost and Found was one of the finest shows of stereoscopic imagery and historic research I've ever attended.
The same warm and friendly tone that is found in the book was very much in evidence from the stage at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Brian May, accustomed to facing large audiences in his 'day job' (as guitarist and songwriter for Queen) brought his considerable intelligence and charm to bear in equal measure as he explained his lifelong fascination with stereoscopic imagery and his particular interest in the work of the early stereo photographer, T.R. Williams.
The book he produced with co-author and photography conservator Elena Vidal is a landmark for stereo-centric publications, even though it can be thoroughly enjoyed by a reader uninterested in 3D. All of T.R. Williams original images are presented as full page, 2D reproductions, with smaller, 3D stereo pairs on facing pages.
Here are links to two articles that will give you more detail about the book and the subsequent book tour; from the Philadelphia Inquirer and Jesse Kornbluth's piece on HeadButler.com. There's also a London Stereocopic Company page that features coverage of the US book tour, here.
