About the Author
Thomas Willeford has degrees in physics, history, and art. His alter ego, Lord Archibald "Feathers" Featherstone, has displayed his work, which blurs the line between art and engineering, throughout the United States and Europe for years. Willeford’s work (including the E-pod) was recently featured in the exhibit, “Device and Contraptions Extraordinaire” at the Ashmolean University of Oxford museum of the History of Science. He has made costume pieces for Abney Park, Beautiful Deadly Children, and GhostFire. Willeford has been called, "The most photographed person in the Steampunk community.” He has been featured in Steampunk Bizarre, the BBC, MTV, the Steampunk World’s Faire, Whitby Gothic Weekend, Glasgow Marker’s Faire, Pirate magazine, and the Daily Mail.

Each chapter contains all the steps for one projects (there are 12 chapters). The book also includes appendices for additional reading, patterns, and metric conversion. Each project has clear and detailed instructions with plenty of photographs for each step. If you love making things, you won't go wrong with this book.
This book - Steampunk Gear, Gadgets, And Gizmos - is a great look at the designs, and means to create and build your own, Steampunk styled stuff. Very detailed, and nicely put together. I think it had some 16 creation projects, and some other examples. If you're a Steampunk fan - either long term or just getting into it - this book is a nice start into the world of Victorian modernism. Plenty of enjoyment from it.
Thomas Willeford is a name well know to most Steampunks and his skills and amazing style of art and crafting have generated incredibly beautiful wonders he freely share with the world. This book shows step by step how even novice makers can embrace their inner Steampunk and create not just Steampunk but costumes and accessories for any kind of Cosplay!
And he's so cool in person He'll autograph your copy is you get to meet him at a Con! (But be cool in asking since he would be working).
Thanks for both the cool books!!!! Oh Ya check out the other one too!
Overall it's a good guide. It gives some background about Steampunk, history, different variations, what to do and not to do, etc. The guides themselves are as good as they can be. You get a picture of a guy wearing everything you can make, which is cool. Each project has an item and tools list as well as tips.
My ONLY issue with this book is the quality of the paper and pictures. The paper is pretty thin and I worry about using this while fabricating as it's easy to tear. Most of the pictures are also out of focus and the lighting is awful. It looks like they were taken with an old cell phone camera. While you can tell what each part looks like, I feel like I'm using a free PDF version of a better book.
