Dieselpunk – the symbol

Science fiction has rockets and planets. Fantasy has shields and swords. Steampunk has cogs and (shudder) goggles, even airships. Atomicpunk has atoms. But dieselpunk has what?

What symbol epitomises dieselpunk? Wings? A Great War tank? Here at Alternative Realities we’ve been writing dieselpunk as personal projects for a couple of years but have never been able to pin one symbol, one stand out logo that immediately conveys what genre a dieselpunk book is.

If you look at our logos for other genres, we think you’ll agree that we’ve done a pretty good job of capturing the spirit of the genres we currently cover. All except dieselpunk.

So, answers on a postcard please (or in the comments section here and on our Facebook page), what one symbol epitomises dieselpunk for you?

  1. I would think the rest thing would be smoke-billowing stacks.
