It looks like good craftsmanship, but strongly reminds me of Just Glue Some Gears On It (And Call It Steampunk) from Reginald Pikedevant

By the way, if you have any tips or suggestions to help me upgrade the designs, feel free to let me know! I would really appreciate it! On the spot, maybe I should try to play with tubes and fittings? What do you think?

I'm glad good that you understand my short comment that way. The craftsmanship of the book looks really nice, but the design not so.

It's my opinion that your thoughts are on the right track.  Steampunk takes a lot of its appeal from Art Deco and having some (fictional) functional things with flowing forms thats are easy to the eyes. I think your steampunk books would be a lot better if you designed them so that all the little things like gears, pipes, wires, gauges and whatnots would look like they serve a function. Arranging them like a lock mechanism, a restrainer (for evil books) or just doing some nice brass art deco elements seem like a good idea. Gears alone just look lonely/useless.

By the way: I really like the look of your non steampunk books. The design looks more consistent. They either represent something somebody would use in rituals, some evil spirits or creatures bound to a book or just expressing some affiliation.

Ouch, that hurts. I really try to think the designs for my steampunk books. But I know what you mean. In this specific book, I also feel like the gears are not intricate enough. They look ramdomly placed, they should touch more, as if turning one would make the others turns. To give the feeling of a whole machine or clockwork.

I have this idea of making a cover using the right gears, that would actually turn with each other, reaching the edge of the book, making the unlocking mechanism for the clasps. This is something I still have to think through.

Until then, it will still be Glued-on gears. It's unfortunate, but I will make sure that the design is more intricate, more thought out.

Thank you for your comment, even if it hurts, it motivate me to push further!
