Steampunk Archetypes Book
 seattlesteam - (artvixn)

Diana posting in Seattle Steam Society
The other day, I was looking at all my photo files and thinking I really should do something fun with all these photos. I have spent so much time and energy creating different steampunk looks, maybe I should share them with others. So...

Announcing the release of my book "Steampunk Archetypes"! It's a petite 20 page book about finding your way into steampunk costuming through some general archetypes of the genre. Fully illustrated with color photographs of many of my steampunk costuming efforts. It's not a serious tome, it's just a little light hearted fun. After all, we're here for the fun, right?

The book is a Print-On-Demand book from Blurb and you can get it here.
I hope you'll check it out!
