“The Steampunk Handbook” by Phoebe Darqueling, illustrated by P.R. Chase, is a fact-based historical resource for fans of steampunk.  It delineates between the different kinds of “punk” in literature and other arts.  Providing modern examples and contrasting them with classics makes the reader aware of just how steampunk is different from other esthetics.

Each chapter is its own interesting lesson, and not need be read in order.  This book is like a mini-encyclopedia with subjects relating to creating personal steampunk characters and worlds.  

All in all, “The Steampunk Handbook” is a quick and easy read, with ideas sure to interest any steampunk fan.
