Such a book has arrived and it’s pure 100% Dieselpunk.
Diesel City by Stefan Prohaczka is more than a collection of his artwork. If that’s all it was that would have been enough to make it special for Stefan has a unique postmodern style of art that captivates the observer.
However, Diesel City is much more than that. Diesel City creatively weaves Stefan’s art with a postmodern noir narration in such a way to enhance the noir feel. Like a desperate man pounding on a typewriter in a dim and dank lonely room.
Even the presentation of the art on the page seems designed to disorient the reader. The art is interlaced with background images in a postmodern fashion that breaks with tradition yet at the same times seems very natural.
As though that wasn’t enough, there’s a fantastic introduction that actually discusses Dieselpunk by name and explains the genre to the reader.
Diesel City is a must have book for any true Dieselpunk. It’s available in both French and English. However, one shouldn’t dawdle. Diesel City is a limited printing. One can buy it from the official web site.
