I got interested in Steampunk starting in 2009 but I haven’t had a chance to be as active in the scene as I’d like to be. I thought having a blog where I could store all of the resources I find and share it with the growing community of steampunk enthusiasts would be a great way to start. It’s clear that this is a genre and aesthetic that is exploding and I want to be a part of it.
My background is in Anthropology, Art History and Museum Studies, so I see this site as a sort of living digital museum that I get to curate. I am always looking for suggestions about books, artists, designers and more, so please contact me via email (ForWhomTheGearTurns <at> gmail.com) or leave a comment below if you’d like to suggest content! I am more than happy to exchange books for honest reviews.
