Arguably one of the best known names in the culture is available today. The “Steampunk Gear, Gadgets and Gizmos” book by Thomas Willeford is a go-to book for makers in steampunk. It’s full to the brim of how to’s, tips, tricks and hacks. For making anything into a steampunk version of itself. There’s also a section at the front that explains the origin of the word steampunk which has been verified by KW Jeter.
“Welcome to the wondrous world of Thomas Willeford, aka Lord Archibald “Feathers” Featherstone, in which he shares his closely guarded secrets of Steampunkery. Filled with do-it-yourself projects, Steampunk Gear, Gadgets, and Gizmos: A Maker’s Guide to Creating Modern Artifacts shows you how to build exquisite, ingenious contraptions on a budget.
Learn from Lord Featherstone as he distills his wealth of hard-learned skills, describes how to use the readily available tools of the modern mad scientist, and expounds on the art and philosophy of scavenging unique components and raw materials. The perfect companion for the hobbyist and advanced machinist alike, this inventive volume will guide you through the creation of your very own infernal devices.”
