We have proposed a high image-quality Lippman type one-step holographic stereogram printer in 1998. However, as with most Lippman holograms, it was difficult to appreciate the quality of the holographic images output from our holographic stereogram printer unless the holograms were illuminated correctly. In order to overcome this problem, we have developed a version of our printer that makes edge-lit transmission holographic stereograms that are designed around the use of a built-in illumination source. In this paper, we describe our method for making transmission edge-lit holographic stereograms. The desired optical system can be obtained by making a small change to the Lippman holographic stereogram printer head. By using this reconfigured optical system, we succeeded in making an instant edge-lit holographic stereogram portrait system. We also describe a cylindrical holographic stereogram as an application of the edge-lit transmission holographic stereogram.
