Art of Steampunk, Revised Second Edition: Extraordinary Devices and Ingenious Contraptions from the Leading Artists of the Steampunk Movement Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

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. The "steam" refers to steam power - as in fire-breathing machines of antique locomotion. The "punk" is an important reference to an outsider attitude.

In The Art of Steampunk, 2nd Edition, you'll discover the captivating and dynamic world of this emerging genre through the creative vision of today's leading Steampunk artists. This new edition expands on the art featured in the world's first museum exhibit of Steampunk, held at The Museum of the History of Science at Oxford University in England with a look at all new, never seen before artists.

No longer satisfied with the plastic design of today's mass-produced products, these artists are crafting a romantic new standard for modern goods by applying the characteristics of Steampunk. Their artwork consists of everything from jewelry and watches to light fixtures and clocks, every piece demonstrating hours of painstaking work and unlimited devotion. You will find that many of the artists are as unique and colorful as their masterpieces, often adopting alter egos of Victorian mad scientists and world explorers, allowing themselves to become fully immersed int he imaginative and exciting world of Steampunk.
