I love steampunk covers, the muted palettes, copper and iron, dramatic skies, ladies in corsets, what's not to love?

But sometimes I wonder what the design briefs must be like. "There aren't enough cogs and gears. More stuff needs to glow. What about a clock? There should a clock, maybe two clocks. Maybe a blimp? Maybe two blimps? This castle doesn't have enough gears. All ladies must be wearing tiny hats or goggles. Maybe you should put some goggles on the hat just in case."

Because when it comes to Steampunk you can never have too many clocks, cogs, and dirigibles.
