Publisher Description

Steampunk, the retro-futuristic cultural movement, has become a substantial and permanent genre in the worlds of fantasy and science fiction. A large part of its appeal is that, at its core, Steampunk is about doing it yourself: building on the past while also innovating and creating something original. VanderMeer's latest book offers practical and inspirational guidance for readers to find their individual path into this realm. Including sections on art, fashion, architecture, crafts, music, performance, and storytelling, The Steampunk User's Manual provides a conceptual how-to guide that motivates and awes both the armchair enthusiast and the committed creator. Examples range from the utterly doable to the completely over-the-top, encouraging participation and imagination at all levels.

Review

"VanderMeer and co-editor Desirina Boskovich have packed their book with hands-on exercises and practical tips to help readers--steampunk fanatics and utter newbies alike--be more than passive consumers."--Entertainment Weekly "This is the follow-on companion volume to The Steampunk Bible: An Illustrated Guide to the World of Imaginary Airships, Corsets and Goggles, Mad Scientists, and Strange Literature. . . . Abrams is publishing this one, too, and it looks to be just as wonderfully produced and presented."--SF Signal
