Tune in at 9 p.m. Pacific on Saturday, January 18, 2014, for The Event Horizon, when Susan Fox and Gene Turnbow talk with steampunk inventor and author Thomas Willeford about his new book, The Steampunk Adventurer’s Guide.
Willeford, owner of Brute Force Studios, is a steampunk propmaster whose works are widely featured on television and in the media, but he’s best known in the steampunk world as the man who created the mechanical arm Nathan Fillion wore in the steampunk episode of ABC’s “Castle.”
The Steampunk Adventurer’s Guide is an illustrated steampunk adventure story (with gorgeous illustrations by Phil Foglio!) which invites the reader to stop along the way and craft a prop needed in the story. With full-sized patterns and photographic step-by-step instructions, you could make the projects as explained; or you could easily simplify them so your 3-year-old could make construction paper versions; or you could go wild and use the patterns and general directions as a basis on which to craft a masterpiece from wood, leather, and any other high-end materials you choose. It’s very literally a craft book for all ages and skill levels.
