Six Very Special Digital Images

For our current Book of the Month promotion, putting back into the limelight Denis Pellerin and Brian May’s The Poor Man’s Picture Gallery, we are offering six very special digital images.

These stereoscopic photographs were taken by Denis Pellerin inside the Charles Wesley House, Charles Street, Bristol, on March 31st 2015. On that day, just over six years ago, Dr. Brian May was being interviewed by poet Michael Symmons Roberts and filmed by director Matt Thomas for a BBC4 documentary entitled “Thomas Chatterton: the Myth of the Doomed Poet”, aired on June 15th 2015 and part of the series Secret Knowledge.

The film crew had very accurately re-created  on the top floor of an eighteenth century house, located in Bristol, where the young poet was born, the London attic in which he breathed his last on 24 August 1770. They had also made a faithful replica of the clothes he is wearing in Henry Wallis’s iconic 1856 painting The Death of Chatterton, now at Tate Britain.

Dr. May, wearing the Chatterton clothes, patiently sat (and lay) for nearly thirty stereoscopic pictures, out of which he has selected and edited his six favourite images. He has also ordered them so that they tell a story.

We are delighted to offer these six stereoscopic digital photographs for free with the purchase of any product included in this month’s promotion.
