Good Guide, but low Quality
on January 8, 2017
I bought this to get ready for a Steampunk event at work. We are required to make and wear costumes, and I have NO experience with Steampunk.
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.
