Steampunk

Steampunk photographs and archival material are being added to the Special Collections, largely as a result of Lincoln hosting the annual Asylum Steampunk Festival but also from a tea duel and convivial held at the University. Collections have been received from Martin Pinnick and Hazel Donnelly and photographs from the collection have been shown in an exhibition of Neo-Victorian and Steampunk artists in Newcastle's Discovery Museum, November 2016-May 2017.

The John Wilson Collection


This was collected by a father and son, both vicars and book collectors in the parish of Donington on Bain. Their library was bequeathed to the parish but when the diocese built a new vicarage there was no space for the collection. The books date from the 16th century to the nineteenth century.
