Oldskull Art Pack V - Dreaming of Steam (AI Generated)


For use by e-book creators, designers, and Game Masters, Oldskull Art Pack V – Dreaming of Steam – features AI-assisted creations by Kent David Kelly in glorious full color.

Unlike other more commonplace approaches to steampunk, which focus solely on superficial tropes (goggles, top hats, steam pistols, etc.), Dreaming of Steam exemplifies the author’s personal approach to envisioning a retro-futuristic England in which the H. G. Wells Martian invasion (War of the Worlds) has forced humanity forward into dystopia in the name of survival. Humanity fights back with spirit, beauty, artistry, determination, and hope for the youths who must take up the mantle of the millions of adults who were slain in the Martian cataclysm.

Dreaming of Steam therefore focuses on atmospheric world building, sacred festivals, societal impacts, traditions subverted by technology, mental illness, disability recovery, dream healing, human emotion, and evocative scenes of mystery.

Product Information
File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
