Gathering Inspiration for Art Style-Steampunk

Some may know what this is, but the others who do not know they would ask "What is steampunk?" It's like a combination of old style antiquity from any age as early as 16th to early-mid 20th century with this Industrial gadgetry added in. It's not limited in color schemes or anything, but usually the colors will consist of browns, greys, blacks, whites, and beiges. I think the best examples I know of so far is League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Howl's Moving Castle, Treasure Planet, Avatar: The Legend of Korra, and the book Leviathan by Scott Westerfield.
Here is the reason why I post this for those who know what I'm talking about. I'm limited in the knowledge of this genre and I want to gather some more information for drawing things like that since I feel my art style is changing. I have a love of antiques and enjoy antique shows as well as the steampunk genre (I like pirates and adventure, but that's another topic.) So, what I'm asking is what movies, TV shows, and books that I could gather more information for inspiration. I would like something below PG-13 and no anime or manga recommendations except for anything Hayao Miyazaki.
