What Is Steampunk? Steampunk envisions the future with a lens from the past. It takes the elaborate, crafted style of the industrial era, and re-imagines it for the modern age. Taking cues from science fiction visionaries such as Mary Shelley, Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, steampunk is a movement that challenges the present to examine its roots, reassess its aesthetic, and once again find wonder and hope in science, discovery, and the days to come.
