Fun, quirky, surprising, interesting…

You will probably be amazed to discover that 3D was the most popular format of photograph 150 years ago! This unique, high quality, coffee-table-style book contains over 200 of such 3D stereoscopic views dating from the 1850s to today and is peppered with facts and anecdotes about Chamonix. The photographs transport the viewer into the Alps during the golden age of alpinism. Famous fellow travellers such as de Saussure, Dumas, Ruskin, Whymper, etc., provide a commentary as we admire intrepid ladies in crinolines crossing crevasses and climb Mont Blanc with Victorian alpinists. Several modern views taken by the author can be contrasted with views taken 150 years ago from the same vantage point, to highlight significant changes and the impact of global warming.

A fold-out stereoviewer is included with the book, allowing readers to immerse themselves in these astonishing Victorian 3D images.

The book will be of interest to any admirer of antique photography, but also to anyone who loves the Alps and has an interest in history or climate change. It is a perfect present for the Chamonix lover.

Born in Scotland, at home in Chamonix, the author Peter Blair spends his free time enjoying the mountains on foot and on ski. He has always been fascinated by the science and magic of photography, has amassed one of the largest collections of stereoviews of the Alps and loves to share this passion.
