The Thing Lenticular Poster by Drew Struzan

Last year Vice-Press had the honor of working with Bottleneck Gallery on their line of lenticular prints and this past February they released another piece of cinema history, The Thing by Drew Struzan!

Well known to John Carpenter and cinema fans alike, Drew's iconic imagery for The Thing comes to life in these amazing lenticular prints. We’ve worked closely with the original source images to ensure that the art is replicated to the highest quality and we have posted a great video of the prototype up on our Twitter feed for you to see it in all its true glory!

They offered two versions in a poster reproduction and an art print with no original poster wording:

A thinner (1mm), flexible PET lenticular print mounted on dense paper backing
A thick lenticular print (4mm), akin to plexi-glass, called polystyrene. They call this one Lenticular Plex for differentiation.

Stereo World November/December 2020 Issue Goes Missing Due to COVID-19

Stereo World magazine cover art featuring A Christmas Carol with a ghost haunting Scrooge in his bedroom.

The November/December 2020 issue of Stereo World magazine has gone missing in the United States. National Stereocopic Association President John Bueche shared this letter to members in January 2021 about the situation.

NSA Members,

We would like to apologize for any delays you may be experiencing in regards to receiving the most recent issue of Stereo World. The November/December issue was mailed in November and has already been received by our international members as they bypass the USPS. As you are likely aware, the USPS is well behind schedule with a record amount of packages mailed this holiday season combined with strict COVID-19 policies.

In an effort to keep you up to date with what’s happening in the 3-D world, we would like to announce that a digital solution is coming very soon. The NSA is offering a digital copy of Stereo World on our website: www.stereoworld.org. The digital copy can be found on the homepage as a .PDF file. Your print subscription of Stereo World will eventually be delivered for your enjoyment.

Thank you for your understanding,

John Bueche
NSA President

The digital version of the Stereo World November/December issue is now available. Right click the link to save the PDF to your computer. Editors Note: Some NSA members have started to receive the printed version of their missing issue as of the publication of this article.

Can 3-D Imaging Reveal if the Moon Landings were Faked?

Do you beleive we landed on the moon or do you think it was faked? Using 3-D imaging and mathematics has led some to beleive it shows the moon landing photos had to be taken in a studio on Earth. What do you beleive? Read on, click the links, and make your own conclusion.

A Stereoscopic method of verifying Apollo lunar surface images was written by Oleg Oleynik, Ph.D.c, previously of the Department of Physics and Technology at Kharkov State University, Ukraine.

"It is now possible to measure the parallax and the distance to all remote objects," writes Oleynik. "In the case of examining the parallax of the Apollo lunar surface images – where, according to NASA maps of the landing sites, the distance to the mountain background should be more than 5 kms – evidence of stereoscopic imagery is expected. If such evidence is absent, the image cannot have been taken in the stated environment, such a image must have been created elsewhere (such as) in a studio. Based on the distance between the camera and rover, the distance to the panorama of the ‘lunar’ scape cannot be more than 150 metres.

Ancient alien and conspiracy theorists have believed for years that the moon landing was faked and that renowned director Stanley Kubrick was involved in the production. A documentary titled Kubrick's Odyssey explores these theories.

Alleged Oldest UFO Photo is a Stereoview

Chinamen harvesting rice with alleged UFO in the background.

A World Series stereoview from 1905 title Chinamen harvesting rice, Hawaii is alleged to be the first color photo of a UFO. The stereoview was listed at an asking price of $1,000 with no bids. The stereoview is a tinted view so calling it an actual color photo is a stretch. The fuzzy alleged UFO appears in the distance above head of one of the field workers. Do you believe? See a large version of the stereoview on the Library of Congress website.
