Showcasing 30 of the very best artists working in the Dieselpunk genre, marrying current design techniques to the fabulous deco aesthetics of the 1920s-1950sDieselpunk, a successor sub-culture to the Steampunk movement, is growing in popularity. As with Steampunk, the punk element refers to the reinvention of the future, in this case with the aesthetics of the interwar years in the U.S. This was the period of the Chrysler building, of thrilling new technologies in the air, of the explosion in production of the internal combustion engine, and of sinister but exciting new arms. This was the era of Detroit; jazz, big band, and swing; and glamorous transatlantic travel; as well as true movie stars, Prohibition, radio, skyscrapers, outrageously impressive cars, and serious talk of going to the moon. More than anything this was the era when U.S. power was unchallenged industrially, militarily, and culturally, and when the future too was all-American. The time-warping Dieselpunk artists featured here have created some astoundingly memorable images. For graphic designers, this book is a gold mine. For sci-fi enthusiasts and anyone into classic American style (including successor Steampunkers), it is almost irresistible.
