What exactly is Steampunk?

Steampunk is a genre that blends the elegance and innovation of the Victorian era with the imaginative, futuristic elements of science fiction.

Originating in the late 1980s as a literary subgenre, steampunk reimagines a world where steam power remains the dominant source of energy, leading to advanced machinery and technological marvels reminiscent of the 19th century.

This unique aesthetic often features a mix of intricate clockwork mechanisms, brass and copper materials, and fashion influenced by Victorian attire. Steampunk draws inspiration from the works of authors like Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, who envisioned fantastical inventions and adventures.

Over the years, steampunk has evolved into a broader cultural phenomenon, influencing art, fashion, and even lifestyle, celebrating a fusion of the historical and the speculative.
