Steampunk: The Art of Retro-futurism
More than just cogs, gears, and goggles, steampunk burst from the pages of science fiction and fantasy inspired by the likes of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells and rapidly grew into one of the most recognizable aesthetic movements of the 21st century. The Art of Steampunk gathers work by the best artists, designers, and craftsmen in the field in a collection sure to fire the imagination of any fan. Its pages overflow with intricate sculpture work, digital and traditional art, and fashion that is at once decadent and utilitarian, perfect for an afternoon fixing your airship or an evening spent at a retro-futuristic Victorian ball. Projects within include conceptual designs and realized projects in fashion, sculpture, toys, props, and more, all of which explore a world where inventions of the past and a fantastical future coexist. Features the works of artists such as Samuel Gomez, Kazuhiko Nakamura, Nicole Stengel, 2-Far Playthings, and many more.
