Macy’s NYC Steampunk Holiday Windows

How did Macy’s know how much our readers love Steampunk?  Some examples of these titles are: Cherie Priest’s Boneshaker series, Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, Scott Westerfeld’s Leviathan series and the Airborn books by Kenneth Oppel.

Designed by Paul Olszewski, the six windows tell the story of a magical ship making a trip to the North Pole.  The theme is inspired by the “Make-A-Wish” foundation, and features the store’s celebrity ornament collection.  “You see this character on a Christmas tree kind of rocket ship that launches and goes to the North Star and decorates the tree.  So all the other windows tell you what’s happening inside the ship, where they’re collecting wishes and their essences,” said the designer to the New York Daily News.
