The quarterly Journal of the ISU, Stereoscopy - the publication of 3D image-makers, is circulated to members. Apart from tuition in 3D photographic techniques, the Journal carries information and articles from around the world on new equipment, literature and all manner of related subjects. Many articles are illustrated with large 3D drawings and stereo photos. Since Issue 1/2007, "Stereoscopy" has been published in full color.
