Steam Punk, my long forgotten love affair.

9 Jun

I’ve recently been re-acquainted with my lost love, the sub-genre of science fiction and speculative fiction known as Steampunk.

You can blame H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, for this blend of Victorian/sci-fi culture. And like any culture it has its own fashion, hierarchy, heros, enemies, music, arts and a language of sorts (mainly adapted old english with a sci-fi twist). The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used — usually the 19th century.

Steampunk came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s.

A lovely wearable piece of Steampunk art.

The Steampunk culture is almost completely run by artists and scientists…In my opinion a delightful melody.

Note the copper tubing in his hair, yummy.
