Filled with LEGO-based airships and dirigibles, monowheels and penny-farthings, cabinets of curiosity and robots galore, Steampunk LEGO is an illustrated gallery of Victorian-era treasures, all built from LEGO. This full color coffee table book is styled as a diary of the fictional Victorian-era explorer, Captain Herbert Jobson, as he catalogs the wonders of the world for Queen Victoria. Award-winning LEGO builder and special effects master Guy Himber combines brick-built marvels with a swashbuckling narrative, fascinating historical trivia, and authentic Steampunk-styled detailing to bring this fantastical story to life.
Guy Himber has an extensive background in Special Make Up Effects and Animatronics and has worked on more than 50 feature films including: Edward Scissorhands, Independence Day, Stargate, and the Underworld Trilogy. Himber (aka V&A Steamworks) is also an award-winning LEGO builder whose work has been featured extensively in BrickJournal magazine.
