I’ve been busy beavering away on a series of five stereoviews of some of my beloved wild fox friends in 3-D to raise money for the local wildlife rescue. During January, the dad fox had a severely injured leg and the wound was infected. It’s taken two weeks of feeding him medication provided by the wildlife rescue, and six weeks in total of TLC, whilst letting him still live freely as a wild fox. Thankfully he’s now in good health, despite a limp, and back to his independent self, but still choosing to peer at me through the window almost every day!
Each set of stereoviews is handmade and there are five types to choose from. There are cyanotype stereoviews, which have used the tiny bit of British winter sun to print them! Two sets of these have been toned with wine tannin to give them an oldish sepia style. Two sets are Instax prints, one is Rich tone, and one is Natural tone. The other sets are dye sublimation prints. All have been labelled with their series number and title. The prints show the mum fox and a cub, two of cub Brioche, and two of dad fox, one before he was injured (he looks a bit fierce, but he was eating) and one when he was healing and looking grateful for help.
Please see the photos below for each card set which is for sale, you can choose which you would like to purchase by using the number, emailing me, and I will send you a quote with postage. I’ve added some scans and you can click on them to enlarge them in Flickr. Please note that I’m in mainland UK and there may be extra fees for shipping abroad and there are apparently still delays to the international delivery service since a cyber attack.
To ensure no money is deducted from the charity, I will be asking you to donate directly to them and to send a screenshot of the confirmation. I can also make individual stereoviews on request, or whole new sets if the ones listed sell, but please give me a little extra time as they’re all made by hand (the tannin-toned cyanotypes, however, take forever, so if the two sets are sold, there won’t be any more). All the stereoviews are in the parallel-view format. Please see the contact page for my email address.

Please note, there are recommendations for how to store and look after specific print media:
- Cyanotypes: Keep away from alkaline materials and/or environment. Try and keep them out of direct light as it will cause them to fade over time. They can be placed in the dark for a few hours and it will bring them back. More info here.
- Instax prints: Keep out of direct sunlight, away from condensation, and store them in the dark. More info here.
- Dye sublimation prints: Keep out of direct sunlight and store them in the dark.
I’m grateful for one of my fox besties still being around and I hope by selling my first sets of stereoviews we can thank the wildlife rescue for their help in providing medication, and to help other foxes.
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported this little project so far, it means a lot to me.

Hi Rebecca, Please forgive the silly question, but what’s the difference between the two dye sub sets? They look identical on-screen.
Cheers, John F.
They hopefully should be exactly the same, but they’re cut and assembled by hand, so there might be slight differences between the two sets I’ve made. I wanted to make sure anyone who wanted to buy them could see what they looked like first 🙂
