Steampunk LEGO

We rated this book:


Everybody loves steampunk! On the off chance you’re unfamiliar with the term, steampunk is essentially an alternate 19th century, a blend of fantasy, sci-fi, and historical adventure, rife with steam power and clockwork mechanisms. Fanciful steam trains and airships abound, while goggles, monocles, and top hats are favored on the fashion front. Perhaps not surprisingly, steampunk lends itself well to Lego building blocks, as evidenced by Guy Himber’s new Steampunk Lego collection. This delightful book features pictures of all sorts of steampunk creations, from trains to automatons, sailing ships to airships, mechanical beasts to unique sidearms, all constructed from Lego bricks. This is not a “how-to” guide, although the Internet likely abounds with tutorials on how to build similar creations. Instead, this book is simply a feast for the eyes and the imagination, full of color, black and white, and sepia photos of these unique constructions. This is a coffee table book, one that is sure to delight your friends, and one that you are certain to find yourself leafing through from time to time. Immerse yourself and get lost in the wonders of steampunk!
