LIBROS is New Mexico’s Book Arts Guild offering a variety of inspiration for both traditional and experimental artist’s books. We hold regular meetings on the 1st Saturday of the month, as well as annual and special exhibits.
Learn how to construct a mini-journal with a steampunk art cover that can be used for many other projects, such as a photo album as Kate has done, or as an art Journal as Micaela plans for herself.
Steampunk is a style of design that combines historical elements, vintage fashion, and incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by the 19th-century industrial revolution. Think Victorian plus Mechanical, Jules Verne, or Retro-futurism. There are various interpretations and methods for employing Steampunk art. An internet search for the word will give you lots of “eye candy” and ideas. More details and supply list...
