Dieselpunk: Retro Futures of the All-American Art Deco Years
General Editor: Stefan with Tome Wilson and Antoni Cadafalch
“Dieselpunk: Retro Futures of the All-American Art Deco Years” is the first book covering the best artists and fashion designers of the movement. Presented in a stunning illustrated volume edited by the world-renowned dieselpunk artist, Stefan. Includes an extensive introduction, a fascinating section on the aesthetic sources of dieselpunk, a detailed fashion section, and a long-form interview with Dieselpunks creator, Tome Wilson.
This was the era of Detroit, jazz, big band and swing; of aluminium and of glamorous transatlantic travel; of Hollywood stars, prohibition, radio, skyscrapers, outrageously glamorous cars and of serious talk of going to the moon.
More than anything this was the American era, when US power was unchallenged, industrially, militarily and culturally, and when the future too was all-American. It is perhaps nostalgia for the latter that is accounting for Dieselpunk’s growing attraction. The contemporary Dieselpunk artists within this book have created some astoundingly memorable images. For graphic designers, this book is a gold-mine. For anyone into classic US interwar style or sci-fi enthusiasts, it is almost irresistible.
