Welcome, Readers, to the Steampunk Bible!

The Steampunk Bible

If you’re com­ing here out of curios­i­ty because you saw the link on the CBS Morn­ing Show page, caught the seg­ment Sun­day, or hap­pened by because of some of the oth­er great buzz about The Steam­punk Bible, wel­come!

The Steam­punk Bible is a beau­ti­ful cof­fee table book with over 200 full-col­or images but also about 60,000 words that form a great intro­duc­tion to and explo­ration of almost every facet of Steam­punk, from art to lit­er­a­ture, fash­ion to movies and beyond. Pro­filed in the LA Times, Wall Street Jour­nal, NYT, and else­where, it’s the first and best guide to this com­plex and fas­ci­nat­ing retro-futur­ist move­ment.

You can find The Steam­punk Bible in any book­store or order it through Ama­zon and oth­er online ven­dors.

Scroll down for inter­est­ing arti­cles on Steam­punk, includ­ing exclu­sive reports on coau­thor S.J. Cham­bers’ trip to Europe.

And, if you want Steam­punk short sto­ries, check out the beau­ti­ful­ly illus­trat­ed The Thack­ery T. Lamb­shead Cab­i­net of Curiosi­ties, Steam­punk, and Steam­punk Reloaded.

Below the cut you’ll find some sam­ple pages from The Steam­punk Bible. Enjoy!

    Some­body: help me, please!

    What is Steam­punk poet­ry?

    A local high school at which I vol­un­teer is putting on a rumored Steam­punk pro­duc­tion of Romeo and Juli­et in late Jan­u­ary 2012.

    It has been my the­atri­cal tra­di­tion since 2004 – as a home-grown poet – to attend every per­for­mance of a school pro­duc­tion, at the end of which I would com­pose poems about one or more char­ac­ters in that pro­duc­tion.

    These poems would be pre­sent­ed to the The­atre Direc­tor for her perusal, who would then pass them on to stu­dents por­tray­ing those select­ed char­ac­ters – all on the Mon­day fol­low­ing the final per­for­mance.

    How­ev­er, I have no expe­ri­ence with Steam­punk poet­ry, and googling this top­ic brings up no results.

    Want­i­ng to com­pose poems for these hard-work­ing R & J the­atre stu­dents in an appro­pri­ate Steam­punk con­text, I ask for your help.

    Thank you.

      Hi Bob! Steam Punk in gen­er­al com­bines Vic­to­ri­an stuff with sci­ence fic­tion and punk rock, kind of. It is very funky. I see stuff that looks old old tech­nol­o­gy with the insides of windup watch­es and elab­o­rate low tech ‘con­ve­niences’ of the indus­tri­al rev­o­lu­tion ilk. I sup­pose that any poet­ry of that ilk would incline toward the same. This link you post­ed was a while ago… What I am real­ly try­ing to do is to con­tact YOU! My hus­band and your for­mer co-work­er Robert Beets is retir­ing and wants you at a din­ner par­ty to cel­e­brate toward the end of August. Let me know how I can get a hold of you to send you an invi­ta­tion.
