The Steampunk Bible: In the House!

Jeff VanderMeer • March 9th, 2011 @ 7:34 pm • News


It won’t be in bookstores until May 1st, but an advance copy of The Steampunk Bible , by me and SJ Chambers, made it into the house today, and it’s gorgeous! Below the cut find a few images. and because this is a Wednesday full of riches, the formatted proof pages of The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities came today as well—I’ve included one photo of those at the end. You can pre-order The Steampunk Bible: An Illustrated Guide to the World of Imaginary Airships, Corsets and Goggles, Mad Scientists, and Strange Literatureand also The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities: Exhibits, Oddities, Images, and Stories from Top Authors and Artists. SB contributors will hopefully have their copies by the time it hits the stores. (A huge shout-out to Jake von Slatt on this project, btw–he knows why.)

Note the wonderful endpapers by James Ng!







And some awesome Cabinet pages:

    My boyfriend was really excited to get this book because he is actually IN it!! He flipped through the book excitedly only to find he was mis-credited in a photo. The giant picture on page 135-136 labels him as Jesse Nobles, who is the photographer. It should read Captain Anthony LaGrange. The black man in that photo is Captain Anthony LaGrange. We run a local steampunk group here in Columbus, Ohio: The Airship Archon. Just thought people might want to know. It may get corrected on future versions.
