History is often flat. Whilst the advent of photography added a visual element to history, photos are still just flat 2D windows into the past. A Village Lost and Found is a history book like no other. Focusing solely on the stereoscopic photos of T. R. Williams' this book gives us a unique 3D view of 1850's England. Williams' seminal work, Scenes in our Village, of 59 photos depicted an idyllic but rapidly disappearing village way of life. This book collects all 59 photos together for probably the first time in 150 years and along with the included stereoscope give us a fantastic 3D view into a vanished past.
