Victorian Robotics?

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.

(Also, I want this car. Yow.)

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.

All photos from, of course.


  1. Wow those guys look amazing! I love the whole steampunk thing but don't think I could ever wear any of those pieces without looking like a nutter! And Prestige was such an awesome movie!!

  2. I know, right? They look really cool, but I don't think I could pull it off.
