This is a fascinating and superbly illustrated look into the amazing world of steampunk. From a fantasy fiction genre, steampunk has grown into a broad pop culture aesthetic, with its own art, fashion, home decor, music, and events. Influenced by 19th-century steam-age industrial imagery, the Wild West, and science fiction, followers modify modern objects such as computers to resemble "path-not-taken" machines and filter fashion through a Victorian lens. The latest technologies are mixed with period styling to create a romantic, neo-Victorian, sepia-toned universe. "The Steampunk Gazette" chronicles this burgeoning international subculture with an illustrated newspaper-style design that reflects the vintage aesthetic. Reports from the forefront of the steampunk movement and a high percentage of specially commissioned photographs make the book a unique record of this diverse and influential movement. Steampunk's current influences on fashion, design, television drama and film will be evident from these pages.
