Celebrate the world of Steampunk: a world filled with beauty and innovation. A world in which steam power and technology intertwine to create machines that are not only functional and practical, but also unique and striking. "The Art of Steampunk" celebrates the vision of Steampunk artists from around the world, providing a unique insight into the captivating and dynamic world of a vastly underground genre. The 17 artists featured have had their work displayed in an exhibition at The Museum of History of Science at the University of Oxford and their artwork consists of everything from clocks and watches to light fixtures and jewellery and every piece demonstrates hours of painstaking work and devotion from its creator. In most cases, the artists themselves are just as unique and colourful as their masterpieces. Those fully embracing the Steampunk ideology have adopted a Victorian alter ego - mad scientists and world explorers - to match the complicated intricacies of their artwork.

En esta guía, Art Donovan nos explica que es el steampunk propiamente dicho, sentando las bases de lo que será un libro lleno de obras-artefactos realizados por artistas steampunks de todo el mundo, como por ejemplo los ingleses Ian Crichton y Amanda Scrivener, el americano Joey Marsocci, el belga Stephane Halleux o el japonés Harou Suekichi...
