Right on the heels of the Steampunk Bible comes another steamy publication that commands the attention of Steampunks everywhere. 1,000 Steampunk Creations: Neo-Victorian Fashion, Gear, and Art is a soon to be released book written by Dr. Grymm of Dr. Grymm Laboratories who was also also recently featured in a piece on Steampunk by the BBC.
There are 1,000 color photographs that make up this tome of all sorts of Steampunk creations including jewelry, fashion, accessories, headgear, art, home decor, and an array of other unique contraptions. Here’s the description of the book from the back cover:
Steampunk is a burgeoning counter-cultural movement; a genre, community, and artform. The Steampunk movement seeks to recapture the spirit of invention, adventure, and craftsmanship reminiscent of early-nineteenth century industrialization, in part, to restore a sense of wonder to a technology-jaded world.
I’m personally very excited about this book as it will showcase a very important aspect of Steampunk culture: the importance of the individual maker and artist, and with a thousand different samples of Steampunk beauty, this is definitely a must have for anyone who loves the Steampunk aesthetic.
This book will be published on the 27th of May, so be sure to pick up a copy when it hits shelves!
