Fractured French Fairy Tails From Flammarion

Album fée [Enchanted Book] written by Rose Celli and Marguerite Reynier, with illustrations by Russian artist Hélène Guertik. This French children's book published in 1950 by Père Castor of Flammarion, featured 3D stereogram magical illustrations of fairy tale characters. The book came complete with inexpensive anaglyph paper glasses called baguette magique or magic glasses that had one red and one cyan lens to allow the brain to merge the two different images on the page. From An Age of Wonder.
