Bon anniversaire Jules!

Steampunk Holiday

Portrait of Jules Verne

Jules Verne: February 8, 1828 – March 24, 1905

Jules Verne, arguably the father of the Steampunk genre would have been 183 years today, and with Steampunk technology at his disposal he probably would have made it, too!

So raise your glasses and toast to Jules Verne today, one of the greatest authors and visionaries in human history. Without him, our subculture might not exist and the first nuclear submarine would go by a different name.
