Steampunk Roundup

Steampunk PCI’m a big fan of steampunk, due to a gothy fascination with Victorian culture and “retro-futurism.” I love the vibe of mass-produced mixed with one-off craftsmanship in the alternate-history technology that’s such a hallmark of the genre. If you’re a fan, here are some links you might enjoy.

The Steampunk Home – This blog is devoted to home d├ęcor that combines “the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.”

Aether Emporium – This is a marvelous resource, which “aims to provide a onestop resource and archive for all things Steampunk.”

The Steampunk Workshop – Lots of resources here, including projects, links, and lots of photographs.

Steampunk Pics – A photoblog which features both images of actual steampunk items (such as “ray guns”) and real vintage photos with a steampunk feel (like Zeppelins floating over cities).

Antipodean Steampunk Adventures – “Follow the adventures of the maduncle as he endeavours to make contact with the rest of the steampunk universe from the outer colonies.”
