Editorial Reviews

Steampunk, once a little-known subcultural phenomenon, has gained popularity. After a brief discussion of the origins and influences of steampunk, husband and wife Marsocci and DeBlasio-who design steampunk props for films-and artist Berry provide background on basic tools and techniques, then go on to present exercises in steampunk-themed drawing, painting, and illustration. These projects increase in complexity over the course of the book, including some digital tools along the way. This title will appeal especially to young adult readers. - Library Journal
