Steampunk has taken over Oxford

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, monsters of all ages, come one, come all, to the glorious and spectacular Steampunk Art Exhibition opening today at the Museum of the History of Science at Oxford. See some of the best that the world of steampunk art has to offer, housed in the beautiful Ashmolean Building. This historic event was devised by its curator, one of the world’s greatest artists in his own right, Art Donovan, whose wonder and talent can be seen in this very show. Dear readers, an interview with Mr. Donovan will follow, but only after some of you have seen the show.

Now, you’re asking yourself: “What wonders will I see at this once-in-a-lifetime, first-of-its-kind show at Oxford?”

cry at its distance from wherever you are.

It's about 10 miles from me, actually, and it's brilliant.

I'll have to head down to the Ashmolean this weekend and check out the exhibit!

Datamancer and Dr. Grymm = 2 of my faves. Lots of talented people going to be at Oxford, and I'm not!

And, for those of you who can't be here, here's what it looks like on the outside, on the Saturday of the University's matriculation day, so you also get to enjoy the sight of Oxford students in their academic uniforms, wandering about.
