The Victorian age was, to a large extent, an age of aesthetics in which skill and craftsmanship were highly prized. What something looked like really mattered to the Victorians. In contrast, our modern world is fixated on rock bottom dollar. But we do have some really cool technology the Victorians couldn’t have even dreamt of. What happens if you mix that beautiful Victorian sense of aesthetics with the best of modern technology? The answer of course, is Steampunk. An utterly modern artistic movement unashamedly building on the aesthetic traditions of the Nineteenth century. It’s a past that never was, a future that never happened; perhaps a best of both worlds.
