Well this was something. The costume designs, the goggle hats, jewelry was interesting. Basically the different types of steampunk designs was really good. Pretty good collection of all things steampunk really.

I would say this book is essential of you are interested in Steampunk at all. This was my first introduction to it, my parents having bought it for Hanukkah, and I fell in love with it. This is a style I have always loved, and only when I got this book did I find out it had a name. Steampunk. I highly recommend this book. Very highly. Wondering about corsets? Take a peek. Or the many different kinds of rayguns? Right here. Heck, there's even a steampunk home decor section. Let that sink in. STEAMPUNK HOME DECOR. So, in short, get this book. -Cat Arcane

This book has many great items and images from multiple Steampunk artists. The only drawback to the book is that the descriptions of items used by each artist/craftperson are stuck in the back of the book. This causes a lot of flipping back and forth in the book to get the details on each item.
