Jules Verne had quite the vivid imagination, taking readers around the world, to the the bottom of the sea and to the center of the earth. His style of sci-fi was a major influencer on the steampunk aesthetic, but we’re conjuring that even a man of his superior vision couldn’t have predicted Evan Butterfield’s Gentlemen of Steampunk photo series.

Or perhaps we underestimate him.

Many of the photos are available in Evan’s Gentlemen of Steampunk book available in print or digital formats on Amazon, or check out Evan’s website.
