Steampunk Gear, Gadgets,
A Maker's Guide to Creating Modern Artifacts
Steampunk is a literary genre that takes its inspiration from the technology-driven
futuristic visions of Victorian authors such as Jules Verne, H.G. Welles, Conan Doyle, George Griffith,
and others. In the 1980s, the Victorian settings of science fiction novels written by Tim Powers, James
Blaylock, and K.W. Jeter paved the way for the thriving genre that exists today.
That literary genre paved the way for a lively community of steampunk artists, jewelers, costumers, and designers. For those who wish to participate in the steampunk lifestyle, the proper accoutrements are essential. Steampunk Gear, Gadgets, and Gizmos: A Maker's Guide to Creating Modern Artifacts provides a master-course in building your own, personalized retro-futuristic artifacts-from brass goggles to a steam-powered mechanical arm!
