BUT....Not very illustrated as the title would suggest. A good history of the Steam Punk genre gradually being coined and growing through history of film, novel and even music. However, the title and cover does suggest a more 'illustrated' content.
BAD title. Not really Steam punk style. But good Victorian style dress making. You need to be in to your dress making to buy this book. It is more of a 'how to stitch and stick' book as a hobby rather than how to create a Steam Punk style.
