fiddlehead1_3As Cherie Priest's wonderful Fiddlehead is out this month (interview and free extract here), she's added even more to the fantastic-ness that is her steampunk Pinterest board.

We now have a picture of Fiddlehead itself, below, the calculating engine inspired by Charles Babbage's famous difference engine.

There are also pictures of real-life spy Belle Boyd - and you can find out more about the woman behind the story here. See below for a small selection of these gorgeous images:

 Fiddlehead - the real thing!
"A model of Babbage's "difference engine," inspiration for the Fiddlehead itself" Cherie Priest

"Belle Boyd, Confederate spy. In case anyone was curious re: what she looked like in real life. (No, I didn't make her up! She was a real person :))" Cherie Priest

And of course, there are some wonderful steampunk images taken from fashion, interior design, jewellery, art and much more. It's such a gorgeous aesthetic, intricate and beautiful, I'd urge you to take a look at this selection of these wonders below. Then do dive into Cherie Priest's steampunk Pinboard here. It's well worth a visit!
