Review


Ever long to see a bright blue poison-dart frog up close? Mark Blum gives readers a way to do just that—safely—in Amphibians and Reptiles in 3-D, the immensely entertaining followup to his 3-D books on sea life and bugs. Using pairs of color photos and a set of stereoscopic glasses which, are built ingeniously into the book's cover so they'll never get lost, Blum presents 44 incredibly clear 3-D images of exotic lizards, frogs, snakes, newts, geckos, chameleons, turtles, iguanas and salamanders.

With scuba gear and stereo photography equipment in tow, he has traveled to the Caribbean, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Fiji to create award-winning stereoscopic photographs. He lives in Pacific Grove on Monterey Bay, California.

The publisher has unfortunately tried to market these fabulous works as childrens books (not that they aren't wonderful for kids as well), but these photos are truely amazing both in the quality of the photography, but also in the presentation. They are printed on very high quality coated paper with a STURDY set of lenses built right into the hard cover, which allows you to view them in all their splendor without any additional equipment.
These are not red/blue lenses! The images are presented in true color stereo pairs and when viewed, merge into a single, dynamic 3D image - WOW! I can't say enough about the overall quality of viewing for ADULTS as well as children.
The price is another thing that confuses me. I don't know why these are so inexpensive? I urge anyone who loves nature to buy all of the books in this series!

Fabulous book with stereo 3-D photos!
I highly recommended this book for school children and adults alike.
I was introduced to one of Blum's books by a friend and liked it so much that I sought out and bought all of his 3D books. I find the price so reasonable that I've since bought more to give as gifts.
I enjoy looking at the 3-D photos as much as my seven year old son so I already know several adults as well as children who will be getting this book as a gift.
The technical quality of the photos and printing of the books is very good. A magnifying, stereo viewer is built into a unique bi-fold cover of the book A little research showed that this idea is well over a hundred years old (like stereo photography) but I still find it very innovative because it is so rare and unusual.
The photographer has an inspired eye and top technical skill. The close-up photography is wild. I wonder how he got those frogs to hold still like that. Some of them are beautifully colored too.
The writing accompanying each image adds to the photos with just the right amount of scientific and general information to serve both young and old reader. I like this book very much and I hope you find this review helpful. I recommend looking for the other 3-D books by Blum. They are all great!

Well, I am running out of superlatives for Mark Blum's work! I just have to repeat myself - AMPHIBIANS AND REPTILES IN 3-D is simply FABULOUS!! One of the MANY wonderful aspects of this book is how it takes you right INTO the world of these creatures. YOU get shrunk down to the size of a tree frog to meet one! AMAZING!
The content quality is excellent!
The production quality is excellent!
The overall experience is excellent!
And all for this price!?!? How DO they do it?
Can't I give it 10 stars? 20?
BUY IT!

All I can say is that you will be amazed at this book, and I have spent the last week since I got it doing nothing but using it.

What stunning books! It's like you are right there with the animals.

To retain the amazing sharpness of the photographs, teach yourself how to see the 3D image without the plastic lenses. Just practice gazing off into the distance while noticing that the two images before you are now three images...whereupon you bring your gaze down onto the middle image, which will be in 3D. Or, if you know how to look at those 3D posters that were so popular at one time, you can do the same here.
