The Art of Steampunk - Art Donovan, G.D. Falksen, Jim Bennett originally posted:http://newborrowedused.blogspot.com/2011/07/book-review-art-of-steampunk.html

My Thoughts: I liked the layout of this art book. The opening was very informative. It gives the history of the steampunk movement; from written words to artwork and fashion inspired by them. My favorite was the artist section. From the clocks, jewelry, and modern technology to the less practical(my 6 yr old asked if Dali had created one of the pieces) each piece brought you further into the world of steampunk. There is a bio and examples of all seventeen artists that were part of the London exhibition. Some of the artists only got their bio and then one example of their work where others got 2-3 double pages. This was the only issue I had with the book.
Even reading this on my laptop the quality of the pictures and art was amazing and I look forward to adding this to our collection of art books.
