1D in 3D

croft_one direction in 3dThe boys of One Direction have been staring at me from the cover of Malcolm Croft’s “unofficial and unauthorized” One Direction in 3D (Sterling, February 2015) for a week now, waiting for me to consider and discuss their 3D-ness. Niall and Louis are pointing at Harry (who is definitely for sure one hundred percent actually wearing those 3D glasses on his head in real life) while Zayn makes a funny face and Liam wraps Harry in One Direction–patterned tape. Having donned the 3D glasses and opened the book, I can look at friendly pictures of the boys or struggle to read the white-on-black-background text with crossed eyes.

Clearly, the information presented is not the most important part of this book.

That said, with over 30 pictures of the boys looking dapper, enthusiastic, and incredibly famous, I’m pretty sure anyone who would want a book of One Direction in 3D will be satisfied.
