Following on Steampunk Fashion and Steampunk Jewelry comes the serious survey that steampunk art merits.
Paradoxically, the astonishing flights of imagination resulting in the most memorable images of the steampunk movement have only been possible due to the advances in digital design packages of the last few years. The astonishing, mind-warping work of 30 of the best of these steampunk artists is featured, including Kevin Mowrer, Guillaume Dubois, Kazuhiko Nakamura, and Collette Ellis. Each has created a distinct series of worlds and aesthetics inspired by different aspects of the genre. An extended essay traces the source and development of steampunk imagery, while detailed biographies of each artist reveals their history and inspirations.
For anyone into steampunk, professional or aficionado, this is a must-have volume, while the stunning quality of the images will also bring a new crowd of adherents to the genre.
