Major Tinker - All books by this author

This handsomely produced, color-illustrated volume tells the story of Steampunk, which started in the 1980s as a pop culture movement inspired by pioneering science fiction tales that came out of the late Victorian and Edwardian eras. Steampunk—with its nostalgia for devices and inventions of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries—soon evolved into an international lifestyle movement, having its own distinctive art, fashion, home decor, music, and social events. The Steampunk Gazette chronicles the origins and development of that subculture, using an old-fashioned illustrated newspaper-style design that reflects Steampunk’s retro aesthetic. Telling Steampunk’s story in words, complemented with atmospheric color photos and Victorian-style typefaces and page designs, The Steampunk Gazette highlights topics that include—
  • Retro Victorian clothing and headgear fashions for men and women
  • Jules Verne-style submarine equipment and exploration
  • The 30 foot tall Steampunk metal tree and tree house in Black Rock City, Nevada
  • Steampunk home furnishings, invariably rescued from dusty attics
  • Illustrated descriptions of Steampunk flying machines, computers, steam guns, and other pseudo-inventions
  • Illustrated reports covering Steampunk music, dance, and theater
  • Accounts of Steampunk festivals, clubs, and cabarets
The Steampunk Gazette will delight anyone who is interested in learning more about the origins—and current expression—of this vital and burgeoning arts movement. Color illustrations on most pages—approximately 500 in total.
