Porter Square Books

Last Mon­day, S. J. Cham­bers host­ed an evening with The Steam­punk Bible at Porter Square Books in Cam­bridge. She was accom­pa­nied by con­trib­u­tors Jess Nevins, Mike Lib­by, Jake von Slatt, and Aleks Sen­nwald. It was a mul­ti-media extrav­a­gan­za, with spec­i­mens from Mike Libby’s Insect Labs and Jake von Slatt’s Ada Altoid Tin and Steam­punk Pick­board were on hand, and Sennwald’s beau­ti­ful illus­tra­tions were on dis­play.

They had a rous­ing dis­cus­sion about art, mak­ing, and label­ing, fol­lowed by very good ques­tions from the audi­ence that called out where exact­ly the “punk” in Steam­punk was, and mus­ings on mod­ern soci­eties propen­si­ty to not see the inner work­ing of things, and I do mean things in the mechan­i­cal and ephemer­al sense. S. J. wants to thank all the contributor’s for par­tic­i­pat­ing in such a great dis­cus­sion, the audi­ence for com­ing out and ask­ing ques­tions, and for Josh Cook and Porter Square Books for mak­ing it all hap­pen.

Sayth S. J.:  “PSB is a beau­ti­ful book­store, and it was a great plea­sure to be there. Josh was very gra­cious to loan us. the below post­cards from the events.”
