I am not sure of the best way to describe steampunk and even harder to describe why it interests me. I was interested in the style before it had a name. For me it is more about recycling as well as combining new technology with historical aesthetic. It is difficult to think in terms of artists but there are a few people out there making some intriguing objects. One of these is artists is Stephane Halleux. It also reminds me of the illustration from the book ‘Green Dog Trumpet’ by Ian Miller which i was given many years ago.
