Steampunk Bibliophile

- by Charlene Murray Zatloukal

This week's theme: It's a Matter of Time

Steampunk is not easily defined. It's a social movement. It's a burgeoning sub-culture that encompasses art, music, fiction, fashion, lifestyle, creation, and imagination with an aesthetic that is rooted in the 19th century's technologies, sciences, and possibilities. Steampunk is not a re-creation of the past; it is history altered. It speculates on our present and its inventions, but created with the technologies and craftsmanship from the age of steam. It looks at the history drawn through a lens of modern sensibilities. It blends time, and it creates its own. Steampunk is the past, the present, the future, and a place in time that exists outside of all three.
