I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things. Join me as I search for items for my house that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.

Books into Bookshelves
Artist Jim Rosenau uses books as lumber to make, well, bookshelves.
Many are built for pure aesthetic appeal, but some of the best combine books on a theme -- here, a bookshelf for "makers".

I am loving this blog - it has inspired me to start my own one here in Australia, called 'Antipodean Stempunk Adventures. I am combining pictures of my past and current work with a story, as well as bringing zombies into steampunk (seems like a good fit).
You can find me at austeampunk.
Cheers - the maduncle
