You know, I'm not the biggest fan of steampunk, but I really do love these pictures I found in the New York Times.
Then again, maybe I like steampunk more than I thought. The Prestige (not really steampunk, but the period is right) and The Extraordinary League of Gentlemen are two favorites of mine.
When it comes to decor, though, my tastes run to the opposite of this subculture: I prefer old shapes made in newer materials (like the Ghost chair by Philippe Starck), as opposed to new things made to look old.
