Steampunk Weekly - 3

a popular accessory

"Goodness gracious me," exclaimed Alexia, "what are you wearing?
It looks like the unfortunate progeny of an illicit union between
a pair of binoculars and some opera glasses.
What on earth are they called, binocticals, spectoculars?" -Alexia

"How about glassicals?" -Lord Maccon

These are my monocular cross-magnification lenses
with spectra-modifier attachment,
and they are invaluable." -Professor Lyall


Excerpt from page 10:
