A richly illustrated book exploring the work of leading Steampunk artists
Welcome to the world of Steampunk: a unique fantasy version of nineteenth century Victorian England imbued with today's technology, resulting in devices and contraptions that seem to have sprung from the mind of a mad twenty-first-century scientist. In this book, you'll discover the captivating and dynamic world of this emerging genre through the creative vision of today's leading Steampunk artists, all featured in the world's first museum exhibit of Steampunk, held at The Museum of the History of Science at Oxford University in England.
Every page features at least one picture of a Steampunk artefact, from goggles to clocks to fantastical flying machines. Alongside this visually stunning content, you can read about each artist and how he or she was drawn to this distinctive artistic style; how this subgenre of science fiction evolved and developed its own community, from its roots in 19th-century scientific adventures to its current lifestyle option.
A fun coffee table book.
