There are not many essays on the steampunk genre. That’s why French publishing house: Les Moutons Electriques (Electric Sheep) decided to publish that one of a kind essay by Etienne Barilier: Steampunk! L’esthétique retro-futur.

From Jules Verne to JD Falkstein, from Japanese anime to Dr Grymm’s laboratory, from Girl Genius to the League of heroes, literature, music, cinema, graphic novel, fashion, every aspects of steampunk are detailed here from a very didactic point of view.

A must-have for any steampunk addict.
