victorian-postcard-whales-haul-submarineThe life and works of Jules Verne will be discussed, particularly in relation to Steampunk Literature, Art, Movies and more. Verne is considered to be ‘The Father of Science Fiction’, and the period during which he wrote his books is the influence for many Steampunk Creations, including Fashion. The beautiful covers of the original books will be shown through examples of the books, and more. The elaborate covers influenced the ‘Pulp Fiction’ magazines of the 1930’s and 1940’s as well. You’ll find lots of interesting anecdotes on airships and balloons…particularly the Graf Zeppelin around the world trip in 1929.
