The Art of Steampunk #1

Doctor Quincy E. Quartermain described steampunk as "the most popular word that has been tied to an aesthetic movement whose origins came from literature and books, but has become one that spans every form of art imaginable. It is fabricating your own alternate future of a past that never was but you wish could have been."

So with that in mind I am going to be showcasing this aesthetic movement by sharing with you pictures of some steampunk works of art that caught my eye over the week.  I hope you all enjoy it and maybe even be inspired by it.
