The Steampunk Bible is out! I helped connect Jeff and S.J. with people doing cool things in the movement and I wrote what I hope is the definitive candy tin etching how-to for this book. Our fashion editor Libby Bulloff also contirbuted articles and LOTS of shiny photography, including the best photo ever take of yours truly.
The Steampunk Bible is the first compendium about the movement, tracing its roots in the works of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells through its most recent expression in movies such as Sherlock Holmes. Its adherents celebrate the inventor as an artist and hero, re-envisioning and crafting retro technologies including antiquated airships and robots. A burgeoning DIY community has brought a distinctive Victorian-fantasy style to their crafts and art. Steampunk evokes a sense of adventure and discovery, and embraces extinct technologies as a way of talking about the future. This ultimate manual will appeal to aficionados and novices alike as author Jeff VanderMeer takes the reader on a wild ride through the clockwork corridors of Steampunk history.

If you haven’t seen the Google logo yet today, GO! Right now! It’s some submarine windows for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, which you can move around to see different undersea creatures, and it’s incredibly adorable.
If you miss it, here’s a few stills:

One of the greatest icons of Steampunk celebrates his 183rd birthday today! Mssr. Jules Verne, the legendary creative mind behind a vast quantity of Steampunk Classics, most notably 20,000 leagues under the Sea, is being recognized in one of the most innovative ways imaginable today! Google has provided a unique header, which not only pays homage to his greatest novel, but even contains functionality! If one plays with the lever to the right of the Google logo, the imagery in the sign will change, corresponding with either surfacing, diving, ahead, or backing bells! So when you have to make your search on the world’s most popular search engine, do take a moment to play with the controls!
Additionally, in my “personal” blog, the Steampunk Shipyard, I’ve listed a good number of links regarding the Father of Steampunk, from the the comprehensive storehouse of knowledge known as Voyages Extrarordinaire! Mr. Gross’ compendium certainly compliments the existing body of knowledge! To see the compilation, please visit the Steampunk Shipyard’s entry, and remember to visit the Google links (choose the logo), after you finish playing with the controls!

[The following is a press release for an event at the Charles River Museum of Industry in Waltham, Massachusetts – Jake]
An Exhibition of Innovation, Invention and Gadgetry
At The Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation’s new exhibit Steampunk: Form & Function – An Exhibition of Innovation, Invention and Gadgetry, sponsored by Steampuffin (www.steampuffin.com), modern technology meets the Victorian era.
Inspired by the works of authors like Jules Verne and H.G Wells, and grown out of the world of science fiction, Steampunk has become a cultural phenomenon like that of the punk rock movement of the 1980’s or the goth movement of the 1990’s.
