Spanning the globe from Asia and Australia to Europe, North and South America, Merge represents the heights to which handcrafted art and design have attained. Possibly the broadest in scope of any book published on the subject, this title wishes to embrace all media, from the impermanence of food to that most controversial and everlasting of substances, plastic.

Whimsical tofu teddies vie for attention with breathtaking fiber art skulls, miniature paintings created on a running fence of carved pencils compete with elaborate paper cutout gowns. Portraits are meticulously produced on a growing number of diverse canvases from hand stitching on fabric to layered packing tape snapshots produced on plexiglass that require a light source to illuminate.

The most captivating art movement of recent years, handmade continues to arrest our attention through the innovative use of new, traditional and recycled materials.

Artists featured include: Sarah Bridgland, Ghostpatrol, Mark Khaisman, Jum Nakao, Atelier Pariri, Naomi Ryder and Julie Vermeille.

Welcome to the world of Steampunk: a unique fantasy version of nineteenth century Victorian England imbued with today's technology, resulting in devices and contraptions that seem to have sprung from the mind of a mad twenty-first century scientist. The “steam” refers to steam power-as in fire-breathing machines of antique locomotion. The “punk” is an important reference to an outsider attitude. In The Art of Steampunk, Second Edition you'll discover the captivating and dynamic world of this emerging genre through the creative vision of today's leading Steampunk artists. No longer satisfied with the plastic design of today's mass-produced products, these artists are crafting a romantic new standard for modern goods by applying the characteristics of Steampunk. Their artwork consists of everything from jewelry and watches to light fixtures and clocks, every piece demonstrating hours of painstaking work and unlimited devotion. The Art of Steampunk chronicled the works featured at the first-ever museum exhibition of Steampunk art, held at the Museum of the History of Science at Oxford University. Now this expanded second edition features the work of additional world-class Steampunk artists, as well as new Steampunk lighting creations from author Art Donovan. With more than fifty new photos, The Art of Steampunk, Second Edition, remains the single most important book on the subject of Steampunk.
