What is steampunk?
Some people may ask, what is Steampunk?
The term Steampunk came from science-fiction novels, and is inspired by the 19th century British Victorian and American Wild West era. In a time before digital technology, Industrial steam powered machinery is regarded as a thing of visual majesty. The genre of Steampunk possesses a life of it’s own and draws fans from diverse backgrounds who share a common interest in history, science-fiction, fine machinery and unique fashion.
