Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The steampunk aesthetic continues to inform popular culture, thanks in part to the recent movies that reimagine the Sherlock Holmes series in that vein. Tedman, a UK-based model maker who worked on the Harry Potter films, and Skeate, an illustrator, collaborated on this collection of craft projects. Some are suitable for everyday use, such as the cogwheel brooch or the luggage tag, while others are better suited to a costume party or a comic book convention. Tips on sourcing supplies and achieving the aged-bronze patina that typifies steampunk style are included. VERDICT Crafters who enjoy steampunk style will find the projects in this collection accessible and easy to create, while people who don't enjoy (or don't get) steampunk style will wonder why anyone would want to wear a sleeping mask covered by a pair of bronze goggles and pieces of chain. In other words—your mileage may vary.
