Although steampunk has been around as a genre since the 1980s, it came into its own as a subculture and artistic movement in the mid-oughts of the twenty-first century. In these first issues of SteamPunk Magazine, some out of print for years, there are articles and interviews on music, fashion, politics, history, and mad science. Groundbreaking steampunk fiction and breathtaking illustration run beside bizarre philosophy and manifestos. Learn to etch copper, to build a pennyfakething from an old bike or a jacob’s ladder from trash. Discover vertical windmills or sew a pair of spats. Here collected now are over 400 pages of awesome steampunkery. SteamPunk Magazine has always been known for keeping the punk in steampunk, for being willing to celebrate steampunk subculture as a part of the global counterculture. The volume is introduced by the illustrious Jake von Slatt and features a cover illustrated by the remarkable John Coulthart. Featuring interviews with: Abney Park, Darcy James, Argue’s Secret Society, The Chronabelle, Ghostfire, I-Wei Huang, Donna Lynch & Steven Archer, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing, Michael Moorcock, Alan Moore, Sunday Driver, Dr. Steel Thomas, Truax Ann & Jeff VanderMeer ,Voltaire.
