A Village Lost and Found is another of rock guitarist Brian May's fantastic stereograph collections. This collection of idyllic, pastoral 1850s life in England and the mystery of its subject town captivate me!
Similar to Diableries, an amazing collection of Devil themed stereoscopic cards, A Village Lost and Found represents years of collecting and research by May and co-author and photo historian Elena Vidal. They dive into the work of T.R. Williams, a well known and prolific photographer in the 1850s. Williams captured a fading style of life in the U.K. in a near perfectly idealized manner. His pictures captivated May and drove him to collect them.
The book also tells the story of the search for 'the village' the photos document. Many had searched and failed to identify the town, May turned to the internet for help and had his answer within days.
I'm a huge fan of Brian May's OWL stereoscopic viewer and this book comes with one. It is simple and a pleasure to use.

Ok, it’s not just solar powered. It’s also an anti-theft, waterproof marvel that keeps my phone’s power bar from ever getting into the red.Sure the idea seems obvious now – tuck a gigantic solar powered battery pack into an exposed slot and turn the wearer into a walking energy harvester. Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
Yeah, Bluetooth audio is pretty common these days, so why should you care about these earbuds? Look how happy that woman up above looks. She’s got FRESHeBUDS in. Boom. There’s your reason. She’s also at the beach and it appears to be a very nice day.But for the sake of promotion, wireless earbuds are fast becoming the […]
“Gets stuff done,” is a good way to be described by anybody. Especially by coworkers or bosses. Because whether you’re in finance or a children’s librarian, stuff needs to get done. But how do you make sure stuff gets done? You definitely can’t do all the stuff yourself, unless your company/organization/government office consists entirely of you. And […]
