One Steampunk author called his chosen genre "a joyous fantasy of the past, allowing us to revel in a nostalgia for what never was. It is a literary playground for adventure, spectacle, drama, escapism and exploration. But most of all it is fun!" All those elements come alive in the coffee-table celebration of one of the most vibrant fields of science fiction fantasy today. In fascinating articles and sidebars; colorful photographs and other illustrations, Steampunk shows how this ever-growing counterculture movement has left its imprint on fiction, film, fashion, comic books, computer games, and even arts and crafts and architecture. From Jules Verne to Lady Gaga, going where you never imagined you would go before.
