Anaglyph 3D glasses (Red and Blue Lenses) are required to view work in the 3-D Fathers of Confederation series as the artist has intended.
There is a stereoscopic 3D effect achieved by means of encoding each eye's image using filters of different colours, in this case red and blue. The Anaglyph 3D paper in conjunction with the black ink drawings serve to slightly realign and displace the differently filtered coloured images, one for each eye. When viewed through the colour coded anaglyph glasses, each of the colours reaches only one eye, revealing an integrated stereoscopic image created in the visual cortex of the brain fusing the image into one perception of a three dimensional composition.

The Fathers of Confederation were the architects of the plan that resulted in the proposal that would bring the individual British American colonies together under a Federalist System.  Creating Canada. There were three main conferences which were held and to be included as a Father of Confederation, one had to have been in attendance during the debates during at least one of the conferences. These conferences were The Charlottetown Conference in 1864, The Quebec Conference in 1864, The London Conference of 1866.

The Fathers of Confederation for the most part were leading politicians from the British Colonies interested in forming and carring out a Federal Union which they called a Confederation. Without the action of these men, the Union of the British Colonies in North America would not have occurred.

Boring you say, well maybe a bit I admit. As boring as the Fathers of Confederation may very well be, they probably don't really get the recognition they very well deserve, certainly it seems any longer.  You'd likely be hard pressed to find someone who knew more than a couple of them.  But they are very important to us and our history, they really, really are…honest.  You know, since they took the time to create our country and all.

Well, don't fret everyone, some of us know this history stuff can be pretty slow
…..but now….. !!!!….. they're now being re-released in 3-D.
And everything is always way more exciting in 3-D.
