Maybe you’ve read the “His Dark Materials” trilogy by Phillip Pullman, or just “The Golden Compass” – truly steampunk for the younger set! The first in a set, here is my illustration of Lyra with her daemon Pantaliamon (in ferret form) posed in front of her beloved Oxford with a compass in the upper left corner. She’s got her alethiometer stowed in the bundle she’s carrying.
