More Victorian/Steampunk Websites!

Old Town Hall Clock tower in Prague

Although I promised someone I would slow down the rate of posts (to concentrate on other responsibilites), I simply could't resist listing the following websites!

M.R. Stefanik, Steampunk Hero

Curious Expiditions

I believe it is run by a Eastern European fellow, this intriguing website goes indepth into a wide variety of topics, from "Absinthe Murders" of 1905 Paris to a bio of M.R Stefanik, a little known rl Steampunk hero. One can be lost in this site for ages, so allow me to assist you ...

Curious Expiditions - Taxidermy of a baby fox and duck




More artistically bent, it has well done aged images, worthy of inspiration of any Victorian/Steampunk concepts. The depth and quality can easily cause an individual to lose track of time simply exploring the site...


The Proceedings of the Athanasius Kircher Society

As described in the Society's mission statment...

"The Athanasius Kircher Society was chartered to perpetuate the spirit and sensibilities of the late Athanasius Kircher, SJ. Our interests extend to the wondrous, the curious, the singular, the esoteric, and the sometimes hazy frontier between the plausible and the implausible — anything that Father Kircher might find inspiring if he were alive today. Records of our proceedings are maintained for the public’s edification."

Great work, including a virtual death mask collection, a lightbulb that has been running for 106 years, and the real video of experimental Soviet head transplants on dogs (the September 10th entry). Prepared to be astounded by it!


Charity Dogsbody's Booke of Sensible Advice

And finally, a new (to me) Caledonian blog that is a breath of fresh air for its originality and quality. Mrs. Dogsbody's Booke of Sensible Advice is about the "musings of a woman of advanced years" in Caledon, who has not only outlined an exceptionally well written background, but address proper ettiquette and manners in a very sensible way. Extensive, unique, and entertaining, I do look forward to Mrs. Dogbody's musings in the future!
