Paper Stereoscope

By Nichila Battilana


“Are there things, objects, that you can't help but feel drawn to? I love old clocks, wooden crates, books. I've also always wanted a stereoscope.  I've wanted to make my own for a while and finally got around to looking into how to make one. Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe—Deluxe Collector's Edition seemed the perfect paper choice!”

How do you find people who are so creative? This is incredible, and I'm just as amazed by it seeing it for the second time. It would make a wonderful gift for a grandparent---they no doubt remember them, even if they were before their time. Amazing job of designing....

We used to live close to the British Museum of Film and Photography, now the media museum. One of the joys of visiting was to try out items like this stereoscope and ensure that new generations understood where it all started. That you had the idea of making one of your own is a stroke of genius, and the finished item looks to be of museum quality. Many congratulations on your amazing skills and thank you for sharing them with us. Your kindness is only exceeded by your genius.

05/14/2019, 03:58:56 PM

How fun and unique!! We have a very old viewfinder - and lots of slides for it. I think I will bring it out our next family dinner here. See what the newest generation thinks...
