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, Second Edition you'll discover the captivating and dynamic world of this emerging genre through the creative vision of today's leading Steampunk 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. The Art of Steampunk chronicled the works featured at the first-ever museum exhibition of Steampunk art, held at the Museum of the History of Science at Oxford University. Now this expanded second edition features the work of additional world-class Steampunk artists, as well as new Steampunk lighting creations from author Art Donovan. With more than fifty new photos, The Art of Steampunk, Second Edition, remains the single most important book on the subject of Steampunk.
