I love Steampunk fiction, that mix of science-fiction in a historical setting and of course all the cool gadgets and outfits that go along with it. I created this entrance-way display to celebrate the widening of our collection in the steampunk sub-genre.
Displayed are some of our notable steampunk books, a general steampunk definition, artwork from Scott Westerfeld’s Leviathan via his website, a few cool gadgets and of course plenty of cogs.
The font used for the title is Steamwreck. I would have loved to include some hanging images and items (old keys and cogs, for example) in front of this display to make it three-dimensional, but unfortunately our very high ceilings do not allow for this.
