Years back, my wife purchased the book "The Steampunk Bible: An Illustrated Guide to the World of Imaginary Airships, Corsets and Goggles, Mad Scientists, and Strange Literature" by Jeff VanderMeer. I always thought it to be a cool looking book but sadly, never came upon it again until recently while reorganizing our bookshelves. I am so happy to have found it. This is a really gorgeous guide which serves as a solid introduction to the world of Steampunk in regards to writings, art and culture. Now, I don't think this book should be calling itself a bible. I think their is a lot more content that needed to be added. That being said, it is bold, it is impressive, it is a deliberate piece which inspires creativity and elegance.
