Verdict? A must for the avid steampunker. 4. August 2011
Von Anna - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I received a copy of this book as a courtesy from the team at Fox Chapel after running into them at BEA2011 this past month in my professional capacity as an editor at Scholastic. I'm not sure they knew I was also a book blogger, but this one was too exciting not to talk about.

A fan of steampunk literature, I was immediately intrigued by the content. So used to building the worlds in my head, coupled together from snippets I've seen of Victorian technology and fashion, tidbits of old Jules Verne and the more recent Wild Wild West (1999) and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) films, I was psyched about seeing some of the world come to real, hard life. After all, imagination has its limits. What better way to flesh it out than with photographs?

And, in The Art of Steampunk, the steampunk world really does take full form. Inside are well over 100 full color photos of some of the most intricate and finely crafted oddities you'll ever see. From Eric Freitas' exquisite and ethereal clocks, to Kris Kuksi's detailed warships--oh, and don't miss Richard Nagy's fully-functioning brass, leather, and copper laptops--the 17 artists showcased here have really populated the world of idea with extraordinary reality. Their pieces, all exhibited at Oxford University's Museum of the History of Science 2009-10 Steampunk show (curator, Art Donovan), will make you catch your breath. The intricate delicacy, brassy trim work, and tongue-in-cheek aplomb continually snagged me between the urgent desire to linger and the giddy itch to flip to the next discovery. Truly, whether chuckling or scrutinizing, you can't help but marvel at the all-around genius of their painstaking handiwork.

The only flaw I saw in the book was its overemphasis on preserving the details of the Oxford exhibition, which I fear may give shelf-browsers the impression that it's more a commemorative booklet of the event than a printed showcase of the art. However, as redundant as the forward, introduction, and introductory essay become by page 33, the front matter does contain some truly enlightening information about steampunk subculture and its art that explicate in enough detail to enlighten both newcomers and die-hard fans alike.

Verdict? A must for the avid steampunker.

A new retro art movement, taken seriously for a change 26. Juli 2011
Von Andrew Werby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
It's a quite comprehensive sampling of the genre, I thought - well-produced, with excellent photography and a cohesive look to it. While I haven't yet had a chance to read the whole thing, several artists' works stood out from a generally distinguished field. I particularly enjoyed Tom Banwell's variations on the gas mask, Thomas Willeford's ornithopter and articulated arachniform, and Ian Chrichton's vessel for traversing the "Aether between worlds". I also appreciated the fact that Art Donovan, the curator of the exhibit on which the book was based, also was a participant, with his amazingly fanciful but technically flawless lighting devices filling a previously empty niche in the Steampunk catacombs.

The show took a broad view of what Steampunk includes, perhaps broader in extent than I'd previously considered. From the goggles, gasmasks and repackaged electronics that typify the genre. it broadens the range to include experimental horologists like Eric Fretas and Haruo Suekichi, model engine-builder Jos de Vink, and assemblage sculptor Kris Kuksi. This is a good thing - for a movement based on the exercise of the imagination, it's always good to set out new directions to explore, rather than have it settle into a predictable set of forms, treated in a standard sort of way.

It makes me wonder, though, if there's any plan to keep these exhibitions going, since I'd really like to see some of these things for myself, without having to time-travel back to Oxford circa 2009 in a brass and glass clockwork mechanism of my own construction...

All we are saying is give steam a chance! 5. Oktober 2011
Von Cape Rust - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book covers both the avid goggle wearing Steampunk to your everyday person who enjoys well made and well thought out art. The introduction to the book and the forward for the individual chapters is interesting and informative. I know steam punk and still learned quite a bit. For people who have never encountered this genre this book is a great introduction. This book should be on the coffee table of any author who wants to write Steampunk. Most of the items depicted have been made, not drawn. While these items don't actually function, the ability to visually hold a shock rifle or see the scale of some of these devices could be a huge asset. There were a few sculptures that while interesting, didn't feel like they were in synch with the rest of the items showcased in this book. I viewed the book on an IPad 2 and it looked great, I have a feeling the book itself is even better. Some things are better in hard copy and I think this might be one of those things. You can tell that this book is a love letter to Steampunk and all of it's coal filled goodness. Art often has the power to elicit emotions and this book does that in spades. If you are a tinker or just enjoy industrial art this book is worth your time and money. This book is even a great pictorial guide for people running a Steampunk inspired Role Playing Game. Give it a peek you will like what you see.

Plenty of stuff here to make you say OH COOL! 1. Dezember 2012
Von Esther Schindler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This photography-heavy book is an excellent overview of real-world stuff that artists (of all types) have made in the steampunk style. From brass-and-glass lanterns to wearable art (such as an old camera lens monocle with black and burgundy leather) to a steampunk rubber-band gun (made with brass, leather, and springs) to computer keyboards (made from aluminum, leather, typewriter keys).... oh, it is all so VERY neat to look at!

Yes, you can find several of these artists on the Web (I first encountered Datamancer's steampunk computer equipment several years ago), but it's far more friendly to curl up with a book of curated best-of material.

If you're looking for instruction, this isn't the book for you. It's organized with an overview of each artist, then four or five pages of photographs with short explanations. There's no how-to. But there's plenty of inspiration for steampunk artists... or just for us armchair admirers.

Grab your goggles and lets go! 7. Juli 2011
Von Rinne Katja Kristina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Received as an ARC through NetGalley

The Art of Steampunk is a collection of detailed, sharp images of engrossing steampunk devices and trinkets. It's a great cavalcade to watch and I devoured the book rather quickly even though I only saw it on my computer screen. NetGalley won't do justice for this book - I really hoped I would have had a hardcover or paperback version of it. I also downloaded it into my Kindle, but it's not readable on it, which is understandable, since it's mostly about the pictures.

The book is a collaboration from several artists. Some of them are rather bizarre and purely decorative in our world, but some of them would be useful design things to have if you ever wanted to make your home a steampunk haven.

For those who are not that familiar with what steampunk is there's an introduction for it by G.D. Falksen. He tells us what it is, where did it origin from, how is it associated with sci-fi, what is it with the steam and punk? It doesn't end there though, so the introduction to steampunk is quite an interesting read even for those who sleep with their goggles on.

The artist pages are filled with gorgeous pictures of the most intriguing things - even if you wouldn't read a word from the book, the pictures alone are worth it. One of the artists is Richard Nagy who most steampunk lovers probably know from the steampunkified laptop.

I recommend this book for everyone interested in steampunk. Great for a beginner and a great addition for your collection even if you live in a zeppelin.
