Ever want to learn more about Steampunk, or more directly about different Steampunk artists? Have you look no further "The Art of Steampunk" by Art Donovan. This book showcases some of the most talented and gifted artists in the Steampunk world.

For those who do not know of Steampunk, it is basically a sub-genre of science-fiction set in the Victorian age. So, lets say you see someone in Victorian clothing and they have some weird contraption or goggles or look not like in the traditional Victorian fashion but they don't completely deteir from it. That is Steampunk.

"Steampunk" has a delightful Steampunk 101 section before the gorgeous gallery of artwork that explains is way better than I just did.

Now the artwork is something to behold.

Ranging from simple light fixtures to even computers, the art showcased is some of the most beautiful work
I've seen.

My favorite piece has to be "The Nagy-Magical-Movable-Type-Pixelo-Dynamontronic-Computational Engine". Long name but I want it and it's litterally to die for!!


Pre-Order it here to have this beautiful book first!
