Jules Verne once said,
“What one man can dream,
other men can accomplish”
Inspired by the Industrial Steam Revolution, Steampunk – a fusion of Victorian and futuristic design – emerges. During the Victorian era, a time of economic expansion and despair, literature and science boomed. Luminaries of that age included: Wells, Poe, Verne, Tesla and Einstein. The creativity of the past, married with visions of the future, fuel the Steampunk movement today. Take a look at some Steampunk aesthetic examples to power your creative spark.
