In this book, artwork consists of everything from jewellery and watches to light fixtures. 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. In this book, you'll discover the captivating and dynamic world of this emerging genre through the creative vision of today's leading Steampunk artists, all featured in the world's first museum exhibit of Steampunk, held at The Museum of the History of Science at Oxford University in England. 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. This expanded edition has added artist profiles and a look at what is happening in the world of Steampunk since the exposition.
