This is a commonly asked question. When people first notice the discrepancy, it can be confusing. So, let’s clear this up.

It’s really a matter of aesthetics and visual symmetrical balance. Hundreds of years ago, someone noticed that using “IIII” for 4 o'clock not only made the dial look better, but helped legibility when looking at the dial from different angles. It’s...

Making your own steampunk outfit doesn’t have to be overly expensive or extremely complicated. For congruency’s sake, it’s a good idea to create your character with a specific occupation or personality in mind. This can often give you more ideas for accessories and helps to ensure your outfit fits together nicely.   Choosing a Steampunk "Archetype" Giving your character an occupation (or obsession, for those mad scientist types) is a great way to coordinate your clothing and accessories so everything really looks like it belongs together and suggests a certain...

Agatha has the antique side of steampunk down pat. It’s the ultimate old lady name. Yet, the name gets a youthful spin in Girl Genius, a...

"What if the Victorians had access to digital technology? What would it look like? It certainly wouldn't look like anything we see today. All of our digital devices wrapped in generic plastic. If the Victorians had access to all of our new technology, it would be done in beautiful woods, brass rivets and there'd be an exposed mechanical element to all of the devices," Art Donovan, steampunk curator at the Museum of the History of Science, Oxford University. That pretty much sums up the style and historical milieu of the...
