This is an excellent review of Steampunk culture. It contains the first 7 issues of the influential Steampunk Magazine (the early issues are very hard to get as they are out of print)which is an excellent time-capsule of steampunk before it went mainstream. The art work is excellent and the writing is amazing. There are interviews with famous artists, writers and musicians that add a context for steampunk. If you are new to steampunk or have been rocking gears for years this is the book for you.

Rather than a magazine, this appears more like a collection of newsletters. The is lots of material in written format and absolutely no worthwhile pictures. The ones that are there are basic line art. I had hoped for an introduction into the visual world of SteamPunk for purposes of making clothing and other personal items. There was an article about making goggles that was decent. However as far as any samples photos or actual 'SteamPunk' garments, the cover is the best art. In the age of easy photo reproduction and printing I found this to be a sad magazine.

In a word, this collection is heady. If you're merely interested in the aesthetic or trendy "brass is the new black" aspects of Steampunk, look elsewhere. If however you are interested in a compilation of art, stories, philosophy, politics, environmentalism, technology, and How-to's a la Steampunk, this collection is for you. Or, if you are new to Steampunk and want to delve in, this collection will educate you, covering topics ranging from Steampunks inception back in the 80's to what it's morphed into today and what it seems to be morphing into for the future.

A good aspect of this Magazine is that even if you are not in a committal, thinking kind of mood, you can flip through the pages and find a fair amount of eye-candy in the form of ink illustrations and also some fun tid-bits and how-to's, such as a pictorial of the various types of Victorian era facial hair, or a pictorial titled "a short visual discourse on the verb "punk." And in true Steampunk fashion there's also articles geared (no pun intended) toward the Maker-minded, such as a lesson in making and wearing your own Spats, or your own Steampunk art dolls. One of the how-to's is titled "It Can't all be Brass, Dear. Paper Mache in the Modern Home."

I can't forget to mention that I've sited on my own blog one of the articles found in Steampunk Magazine, titled "What then is Steampunk? Colonizing the Past so we can Dream the Future," (by the Catastrophone Orchestra and Arts Collective NYC)because it does an excellent job at succinctly elucidating what is significant about Steampunk as applied to both life and art in this oh-so-modern era.

All in all, this compilation is like taking a Steampunk 101 course, and from the comfort of an armchair--win-win.

This is a creative and unique compilation that kept me reading from cover to cover. Normally, I read most magazines for a particular article or series of insights, and don't look over all of the material. Steampunk Magazine made me sit down and read until there was nothing left to read, and it was wonderful. I found projects to do, new music to try, new writers to read, and most importantly, I found a name for my passion.

If you are interested in Steampunk you must read this. Excellent writing covering the Steampunk lifestyle, how-to projects, fiction, and historical perspectives. I truly enjoy reading (and reading) the many diverse articles and stories and think you will too.
