£14.95
Perhaps the most fascinating, provocative and intricately modelled of all images created during the 19th century craze for stereoscopic photography remain those created in Paris from around 1860 onwards, and now known as Diableries (or devilries'). 19th century France was renowned for its preoccupation with Satanism and death, and these Diableries were a foremost populist expression of this dark undercurrent. Diableries: A Trip to the Underworld is a long-overdue celebration of this art. The 72 images are shown in their entirety with in-depth analysis.'
