In a future where we cruise back and forth between our underwater cities in lovingly hand-crafted vessels, we can look forward to Andrew George Brown's "Fanciful Submarines," whimsical boats that fin through the waters and creep across the ocean floor.

Artist Andrew George Brown passed away in 1982, and created his "Fanciful Submarine" series in 1980, long before the term "steampunk" entered the public consciousness. While they're all called "submarines" and some are clearly designed to walk the bottom of the ocean, others must spend some time above the surface. After all, wouldn't your laundry have a hard time drying underwater?


Brown's daughter is selling these through Etsy as giclee prints and printed cards.
