PART STEP-BY-STEP HOW-TO-DRAW GUIDE, PART THRILLING STEAMPUNK ADVENTURE STORY

At the end of the 19th century, a brilliant inventor, Professor Jonathan T. Buck, crafted a beautiful steam-powered airship for an expedition to South Americas Amazon River Basin in search of a magnificent lost city — hidden from terrestrial explorers for centuries by its surrounding dense forests.

But something mysterious happened in the heart of the jungle — Buck, his crew and the Air Paddle Steamer Claire vanished.

More than a century later, an expedition sent to look for any trace of the Claire vanished and its crew discovered a single, discarded trunk lodged high in the forest canopy. Inside was this notebook: a riveting — firsthand account that reveals not only just how Buck drew up the plans for his airship, but what fate befell the expedition.

Professor Jonathan T. Buck's Mysterious Airship Notebook is unlike any adventure story before. Part drawing guide, part historical saga, this book will transport readers to a world before modern technology, when steam power, gadgets, gases and gizmos took us into the skies.

Synopsis:

The Ultimate How-To Guide For Putting Your Detailed, Precise, And Imaginative Steampunk Visions On Paper

Drawing Steampunk gives you hundreds of step-by-step, do-it-yourself drawings of everything from tiny clothing elements to complex mechanical devices. It is designed specifically to help imaginative individuals draw the steampunk future. With tips, tricks, and techniques from this book, you can take the fictional steampunk vision beyond your favorite novels and illustrate your own fashions, contraptions, and intricate machines. Taking the bewilderment out of the drawing process, Drawing Steampunk shows how complexity begins with a few simple lines. For beginners, there's a special primer section, while more experienced artists can dive right in to drawing the moving gears, brass knobs, and steam boilers that make 19th-century style so cool.
