5.0 out of 5 stars Being Splendid!, 17 Sep 2012
This review is from: The Steampunk Gazette (Hardcover)
THE STEAMPUNK GAZETTE by Major Tinker (Fil Rouge Press) 2012

This excellent illustrated guide to the world of Steampunk is very welcome. Aficionados of Steampunk will find much to uplift and excite them, from the inventions and costumes to the literary and media expressions of this rich culture. Those looking for a general introduction to Steampunk need look no further. The many pictures will give the flavour of this quirky and inventive world. One particularly strong feature of this book is its international focus, demonstrating clearly that Steampunk spans the globe. Major Tinker (aka John Naylor) is the founder of the Victorian Steampunk Society and the organiser of the Asylum, the first UK Steampunk gathering, one of the largest in Europe. He writes warmly and informatively about the modes of Steampunk engagement; in some ways his text could stand as a manual of good Steampunk manners. The good humour, enjoyment and invention of this world floods out of every page. Read, go forth in costume and, in the words of Major Tinker, be splendid!

Following the USAcentric Steampunk Bible that came out last year, this is a much more inclusive overview of the worldwide Steampunk scene.
Highly recommended!

Hurrah! A csteam punk genre book that does not concentrate on the unattainable but on the spirit of steam punk - including tea and cake. Maybe a bigger section on comics would have been good and literature generally - which I have had to find out for myself but hey - not too bad an effort editors!

This is the book for you if you really want to see what Steampunk is all about. Not just in the U.S.A. but in the U.K. and the rest of the world as well. The book is well written and has masses of good high quality really illustrating this exciting sub genre. It does not just show Clothes but gadgets and makes as well. The europeon pages were especially interesting, as was the Japanese ones. I understand this is just volume 1. I cant wait to see how this genre evolves as seen through the eyes of Major Tinker.
