Overview


Originally coined to describe fantasy and science fiction in steam-powered settings, the term "steampunk" has come to identify an aesthetic movement. Its campy redefinition of Victorian style blends elements of technology and romance, and its influence extends from literature and art to music and fashion.
This book and CD-ROM compilation offers artists and crafters a wealth of authentic Victorian graphics for creating steampunk imagery. More than 500 illustrations range from dirigibles and sea vessels to corsets and pocket watches. In keeping with the movement's inventive spirit, a gallery of original collages features inspiring examples of the illustrations' potential combinations.
This book includes a CD-ROM containing 539 royalty-free images saved in JPEG format.

Quite simply, the cover states "CD inside" - there's nothing inside - customer service when queried said my complaint was too complicated for an email - would have to talk to them on the phone - really don't have the time to wait to talk to someone about something so basic. Cost of book, not to mention cost of shipping back not worth my time. Soooo, graphics are great, but don't buy it if you would like the CD included.
