Sports Illustrated Book 3D

Between my sports loving family and my passion for photography, the fun started as soon as we opened the book Sports Illustrated Kids:  3D Sports Blastand put on our 3d glasses. It certainly is an “in your face” experience starting with three dimensional karate chops and basketball dunks taken by stereographer David Klutho.

Now, when I think of a 3D experience it usually means a backdrop with one or two giant images popping off the screen or page. In this case, what I found to be the most fascinating was the multi-dimensionality of each page. The 3D effect is layered. In other words, the images that do pop out almost look as if you can pinch them or even stand behind them! The depth really places the reader in the scenario as opposed to the images just being in front of you.

My husband and son love their sports, so for them this was a non-stop action book bringing their favorite players to life. For me, it was more than beautiful photography it was actually quite educational!  I was introduced to sports I had never even heard of before and learned interesting facts about the players and the historical relevance of their sport.  I really enjoyed that.

Whether you’re a sports buff or not it’s a fun book to read as a family.
