Thailand’s English-language Bangkok Post published its Aug. 6 edition with 3D images, the first in the country, according to the Malaysian National News Agency Bernama reports.
The three-dimensional effect, used with most color news photos and ads in all sections, including business, of the 40-page paper, could be seen using the glasses that came with the newspaper.
The special edition, sold at the usual price, coincided with the Post‘s 64th anniversary. Page one carries a 3D shot of a woman looking at Siam tulips in a nursery.
Having just won the Best Overall Design award in Asia Pacific and the Middle East, as judged by the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers at a conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the Post included an “Our Pride” section entirely in 3D.
