Description

In the later part of the 20th Century the now-defunct New York Company VariVue had become a household name in the production of an enormous number of animated and stereographic lenticular images. The term “stereographic lenticular” sounds very technical but odds are that nearly everyone at one point in their life has seen one of these prints somewhere. Since their inception they have been applied to everything from cereal boxes, to department store displays to postcards and buttons and, recently, on the cover of pan style=”FONT-STYLE: italic”>TV Guide magazine. One thing could be said is that they add a unique eye-catching appeal. Informally, lenticulars had been produced by the company since the 30’s. Vari-Vue had popularized the technology worldwide.

When the company closed, Robert Munn purchased all or VariVue’s equipment and began mastering the art of lenticulars. He has been involved with stereo photographic imaging since 1978 and lenticular imaging since 1984. He has produced innovative and unusual works in standard 35mm stereo formats (StereoRealist, View Master, wide-format 3-d, experimental three dimensional films, light sculpture, Hyperstereo, etc.) Munn’s stereo photography was utilized for a series of viewmaster reels created for the Intrepid Sea Air & Space Museum, and has taken stereo photographs of Sterling Hayden, Eric Clapton, B. B. King, Albert King, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, David Bowie, Aerosmith, Adrian Belew, David Stewart, George Clinton, Melissa Etherage, in addition to a large body of stereo photographic work documenting New York over a period of many years. His involvment with Lenticular imaging began in 1986, producing his first image in 1987. He started The Depthography Group to create lenticular imaging as an art form in 1990. In 1991 he founded Depthography, Inc. and was responsible for a number of significant technical advancements to the state of the art, including the first computer graphics based 3-D animated lenticular images, the first images containing over 36-50 frames of animation, and the first 2-D/3-D conversions from a single flat image.

Each lenticular is handcrafted and completely original works of art. The offered collection have been handcrafted by Munn in his New York studio and are offered as an exclusive from pan style=”FONT-STYLE: italic”>American Memorabilia.


Eat a Peach is a 1972 double album by the Southern rock group The Allman Brothers Band; it was the last to include founding member and lead slide guitar player Duane Allman, who was killed in a motorcycle accident while the album was being recorded. The album’s title actually came from something Duane said in an interview shortly before he was killed. When asked what he was doing to help the anti-war effort, Duane replied, “There ain’t no revolution, it’s evolution, but every time I’m in Georgia I eat a peach for peace; the two-legged Georgia variety.” The album art was selected by Rolling Stone magazine in 1991 as one of the 100 greatest album covers of all time. The oversized effect and transition from the truck carrying the peach to the the train carrying the watermelon is simply breathtaking and incredible!
