Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From formal outfits to costumes crafted for the stage, from ensembles suited to adventure to casual street styles, steampunk fashion has come to encompass quite a few different looks. But what exactly is steampunk? Originally conceived as a literary genre, the term “steampunk” described stories set in a steam-powered, science fiction-infused, Victorian London. Today steampunk has grown to become an aesthetic that fuels many varied art forms. Steampunk has also widened its cultural scope. Many steampunk practitioners, rather than confining their vision to one European city, imagine steam-driven societies all over the world.
 
Today the vibrance of steampunk inspires a wide range of individuals, including designers of high fashion, home sewers, crafters, and ordinary folks who just want to have fun. Steampunk fashion is not only entertaining, dynamic, and irreverent; it can also be colorful, sexy, and provocative. Most of all, steampunk fashion is accessible to everyone.
 
Illustrated throughout with color photographs of the dazzling creations of numerous steampunk fashion designers, Anatomy of Steampunk is an inspirational sourcebook. In addition to presenting the looks and stories of these creative fashion artists, the book also details ten steampunk projects for the reader to try at home. Allow steam to power your imagination!

Synopsis:

The Anatomy of Steampunk is a fashion sourcebook of nearly 200 inspirational photos for the steampunk “look” you want. Also includes DIY tips for transforming your own wardrobe.

Synopsis:

Steampunk fashion is hotter than ever with top-name designers (Anna Sui, Prada, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Balenciaga) incorporating Victorian-inspired fashion into their latest cutting-edge designs. The Anatomy of Steampunk is an inspirational fashion sourcebook for would-be steampunks everywhere. Loaded with stunning photography, you’ll get tips and ideas from steampunk-styled corsets and gloves to retro-futuristic dresses and mechanical jewelry. 

Organized by the “look” you’re after, get creative new style ideas like “The Aristocrat,” “The Explorer,” “The Scientist,” or “The Futurist.” This is steampunk undressed, and you’ll discover how to create your own unique look.

The best part? The Anatomy of Steampunk has DIY tips for transforming your ordinary, everyday clothing into a sizzling steampunk wardrobe. Discover how a few hooks or clips can transform a loose-fitting dress into a sexy, waist-cinching Victorian gown. Learn why a few strategically placed buttons or swatches of lace can make a blouse go from ordinary to extraordinary. 

Featuring nearly 200 color photos and a preface by Diana M. Pho (known in the steampunk community as Ay-leen, the Peacemaker), author of the steampunk blog, Beyond Victoriana, this fashion sourcebook is an absolute must-have for steampunkers everywhere.
