The Steampunk Bible: An Illustrated Guide to the World of Imaginary Airships, Corsets and Goggles, Mad Scientists, and Strange Literature

Steampunk-a grafting of Victorian aesthetic and punk rock attitude onto various forms of science-fiction culture-is a phenomenon that has come to influence film, literature, art, music, fashion, and more. The Steampunk Bible is the first compendium about the movement, tracing its roots in the works of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells through its most recent expression in movies such as Sherlock Holmes. Its adherents celebrate the inventor as an artist and hero, re-envisioning and crafting retro technologies including antiquated airships and robots.

A burgeoning DIY community has brought a distinctive Victorian-fantasy style to their crafts and art. Steampunk evokes a sense of adventure and discovery, and embraces extinct technologies as a way of talking about the future. This ultimate manual will appeal to aficionados and novices alike as author Jeff VanderMeer takes the reader on a wild ride through the clockwork corridors of Steampunk history.

Jeff VanderMeer is an award-winning author and coeditor of a bestselling anthology of Steampunk literature. S. J. Chambers is an independent Poe scholar focusing on his importance to genre literature like Steampunk.

Hardcover, 224 Pages, 150 color illustrations

From the exhibition Gregory Manchess: Above the Timberline on view November 10, 2018 through February 24, 2019 at Norman Rockwell Museum.
