Steampunk: An Illustrated History of Fantastical Fiction, Fanciful Film and Other Victorian Visions - Brian J. Robb I really enjoyed this survey of the Steampunk history and the popular culture showcase shown in this book. While the focus is on the literary evolution of this genre, he also talks about the heroine archetype, film, costuming and also the movement in Japan as well. Lots of rich pictures and interesting facts and influences that paved the way for what we call Steampunk today.
