Steampunk!

“To me, it’s essentially the intersection of technology and romance.” – Jake von Slatt

Steampunk is the subgenre of science fiction and fantasy that incorporates aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery and technology. Relying heavily on Victorian time settings, this genre also includes inspiration from the Medieval Age, Middle Age, Western/Wild West period, Science Fiction, Industrial and Modern ages.  The “steam” referring to the genre’s base in technology, specifically steam power.  The “punk”, although debated depending on whom you talk to, refers to the individuality and creativity of one’s self, through style, gadgets or attitude.  It began as a sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy and often Mary Shelly (Frankenstein), H.G. Wells (The Time MachineThe War of the Worlds), and Jules Verne (Around the World in 80 Days, Journey to the Center of the Earth, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea) are noted as originators of the steampunk literary genre.

We love Steampunk for it’s roots in the ninetieth century. We love all the brass and copper, the intricate etchings and wood engravings, the opulence of details, we admire and celebrate the spokes on a gear to the form and functionality each item carries.
