"What is Steampunk?"

Although the term Steampunk didn't surface until the 1980th, its origins can be traced back to the nineteenth century with science fiction-romance fused novels by Jules Verne and H.G Wells. Jules Verne was not only influential through his novels; Karel Zeman's film "The Fabulous World of Jules Verne" was highly influential, as was Disney's adaptation of Verne's novel "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea". The original TV Series of "The Wild Wild West" in the 60th was visually very much of the Steampunk genre.


According to Wikipedia', "Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery", like a fantasy with a mechanical connection.

"What would the future world have looked like if electricity had not be."

  Today, Steampunk has developed into a vibrant subculture found both on the √¶thernet and in the real world. Over time, Steampunk has evolved not only in literature, but now has been extended into fashion, engineering, various types of art and music and for some into a new lifestyle as well. For this reason, the imagery of Steampunk is always very futuristic but still retains the Victorian style.
