Steampunk is a burgeoning counter-cultural movement; a genre, community, and artform. The Steampunk movement seeks to recapture the spirit of invention, adventure, and craftsmanship reminiscent of early-nineteenth century industrialization, in part, to restore a sense of wonder to a technology-jaded world.
Packed with 1,000 color photographs, "1,000 Steampunk Creations "features a showcase of stunning jewelry, fashion, accessories, headgear, artwork, home decorations, and curious contraptions.
