Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

The Steampunk Gazette
Print
Baker & Taylor
Tells the story of the 1980s pop culture movement inspired by early Victorian science fiction that developed into an international lifestyle movement, having its own distinctive art, fashion, home decor, music, and social events.

Barron's Educational Publishing
This handsomely produced, color-illustrated volume tells the story of Steampunk, which started in the 1980s as a pop culture movement inspired by the early science fiction that came out of the Victorian era. It soon developed into an international lifestyle movement, having its own distinctive art, fashion, home decor, music, and social events. The Steampunk Gazette chronicles the origins and development of this subculture, using an illustrated newspaper-style design that reflects Steampunk's retro aesthetic. Telling Steampunk's story in words, complemented with atmospheric color photos and Victorian-style typefaces and page designs, The Steampunk Gazette highlights topics that include--

  • Retro Victorian clothing fashions for men and women
  • Gentlemen's headgear
  • Jules Verne-style submarine equipment and exploration
  • The 30 foot tall Steampunk metal tree and tree house in Black Rock City, Nevada
  • Steampunk home furnishings, invariably rescued from dusty attics
  • Illustrated descriptions of Steampunk flying machines, computers, steam guns, and other pseudo-inventions
  • Illustrated reports covering Steampunk music, dance, and theater
  • Accounts of Steampunk festivals, clubs, and cabarets
  • Steampunk sports and games

    The Steampunk Gazette will delight anyone who is interested in learning more about the origins--and current expression--of this vital and burgeoning arts movement. Color illustrations on most pages--approximately 500 in total.
