The New Bohemians Excerpt :

A New York Times bestseller. “With pages of tips and twelve DIY projects, the book makes the free-spirited style easy to achieve.” —Architectural Digest In The New Bohemians, LA-based designer Justina Blakeney defines the New Bohemians as creative individuals who are boutique owners and bloggers, entrepreneurs and ex-pats, artists and urban farmers. They embrace free-spirited, no-rules lifestyles and apply that attitude to all areas of their existence, including their homes. With little distinction between work and play, the new boho home often includes an office, art gallery, showroom, photography studio, restaurant, or even a pop-up shop. The New Bohemians explores 20 homes located primarily on the East and West coasts. Exclusive interviews with the owners, 12 DIY projects created by Blakeney and inspired by objects found in the homes, and a “Plant-O-Pedia” offer insight into achieving this aesthetic. In addition, each home is accompanied by an Adopt-an-Idea section that offers general decor, styling, and shopping tips for easy duplication in your own home. “The New Bohemians is sure to inspire readers to create, to reuse, to grow, to let loose, and to invite some cool and collected energy into their own homes.” —California Home+Design “A colorful and endlessly inspiring cover-to-cover read . . . From the dreamy homes of twenty stylesetters across the country to easy DIY projects, The New Bohemians is our new favorite coffee table book for home inspiration.” —One Kings Lane “Fans of Justina’s style will be glad to see [the book] reads like a how-to for finding one’s own inner bohemian . . . the book is as functional as it is gorgeous.” —Apartment Therapy

The Bohemians Excerpt :

A dazzling novel of one of America’s most celebrated photographers, Dorothea Lange, exploring the wild years in San Francisco that awakened her career-defining grit, compassion, and daring. “Jasmin Darznik expertly delivers an intriguing glimpse into the woman behind those unforgettable photographs of the Great Depression, and their impact on humanity.”—Susan Meissner, bestselling author of The Nature of Fragile Things In this novel of the glittering and gritty Jazz Age, a young aspiring photographer named Dorothea Lange arrives in San Francisco in 1918. As a newcomer—and naïve one at that—Dorothea is grateful for the fast friendship of Caroline Lee, a vivacious, straight-talking Chinese American with a complicated past, who introduces Dorothea to Monkey Block, an artists’ colony and the bohemian heart of the city. Dazzled by Caroline and her friends, Dorothea is catapulted into a heady new world of freedom, art, and politics. She also finds herself falling in love with the brilliant but troubled painter Maynard Dixon. As Dorothea sheds her innocence, her purpose is awakened and she grows into the artist whose iconic Depression-era “Migrant Mother” photograph broke the hearts and opened the eyes of a nation. A vivid and absorbing portrait of the past, The Bohemians captures a cast of unforgettable characters, including Frida Kahlo, Ansel Adams, and D. H. Lawrence. But moreover, it shows how the gift of friendship and the possibility of self-invention persist against the ferocious pull of history.

We Are the New Bohemians Excerpt :

Long called the Golden City, modern-day Prague stands as a shining jewel of Central and Eastern Europe. A link between post-Communist East and capitalist West, Prague is a city sitting on the cusp of regression and progress. This tension is mirrored in its people, those who cling to their past with the bitter vigor of a shot of Becherovka, and those whose hearts hold onto the hope of a better future. We Are The New Bohemians: The Post-Communist Collection tells the stories of these souls, finding them fearfully abandoned in hidden rooms and bleeding in back alleys. Finding them in the plain daylight of bustling streets and in the long shadows of the city, caught up in the alienation and uncertainty of a new way of life. Yet in the midst of this fear and loathing, these "Bohemians" are given the necessary grace to find their true selves as they struggle to rise above what they've been so meagerly apportioned by a world that often opposes second chances.

Bobos in Paradise Excerpt :

In his bestselling work of “comic sociology,” David Brooks coins a new word, Bobo, to describe today’s upper class—those who have wed the bourgeois world of capitalist enterprise to the hippie values of the bohemian counterculture. Their hybrid lifestyle is the atmosphere we breathe, and in this witty and serious look at the cultural consequences of the information age, Brooks has defined a new generation. Do you believe that spending $15,000 on a media center is vulgar, but that spending $15,000 on a slate shower stall is a sign that you are at one with the Zenlike rhythms of nature? Do you work for one of those visionary software companies where people come to work wearing hiking boots and glacier glasses, as if a wall of ice were about to come sliding through the parking lot? If so, you might be a Bobo.

Bohemian Manifesto A Field Guide to Living on the Edge Excerpt :

Bohemians don’t care what the neighbors think. They live free and fearlessly, pursuing their ideals and artistic inclinations. This NEW EDITION of Bohemian Manifesto is an exciting glimpse into the world of counterculture living, full-color dreaming and poetic revelations. Authors Laren Stover and Paul Himmelein deliver wit, whimsy, and insider wisdom as they build upon the five types of Bohemians—Folkloric , Beat, Dandy, Nouveau and Zen—exploring two additional Bohemian subsets: the earth-loving Fairy Folk with their mystical glamour, and the dapper denizens of the shadows, otherwise known as Dandy Goths, charmingly detailing their peculiar eccentricities and styles. The authors also expand on the elevated ethos, ecologically driven aesthetic and herbivore habits of the Zen Bohemian, the modern world’s most likely saviors. With new illustrations by the acclaimed international artist Izak, Bohemian Manifesto dares you to open to any page and let its shimmering descriptions tempt you to live a more authentic life.

Down to Earth Excerpt :

The designer and author of Habitat “shares how she imbues any space with warmth and energy” in this elevated yet accessible follow-up (MarthaStewart.com). Down to Earth picks up right where Lauren Liess’s critically acclaimed Habitat left off. While Habitat walked readers through the decorating process step-by-step, Liess’s latest title takes a step beyond the basics and invites readers to incorporate the main components of her familiar design aesthetic: nature, easy living, and approachability. With evocative photos and substantive design advice, Down to Earth focuses on creating a lifestyle that inspires creativity and functionality. Throughout the book, Liess shows readers how to incorporate six guiding principles in six unique homes: a new farmhouse, a classic American historical home, a lakeside contemporary house, a modern villa, a turn-of-the-century American Foursquare, and a cedar and glass house on a bluff. While each home has a different architectural style, fingerprints of Liess’s down-to-earth style are evident throughout. “Full of the stunning images you would expect. They will spark your creativity and inspire your own designs. However, the real beauty comes from Lauren showing readers how to create ease in their own homes.” —Ariadne Shoppe “Her style embraces lived-in, vintage-inspired interiors . . . Her philosophy is that if your home is relaxed, then you’re relaxed.” —One Kings Lane

Haute Bohemians Excerpt :

Who, exactly, is a haute bohemian? Leave it to the discriminating eye of photographer Miguel Flores-Vianna, who enjoys an international, cult-like following. He has journeyed through four continents to capture an extraordinary group of fashion designers, landscape architects, artists and art historians, potters, and interior designers, wherever they live--in country cottages, beach bungalows, canal-side lofts, and East Village apartments, as well as assorted estancias, ch�teaux, and palazzi. Some spaces are grand, others are modest, but all are original, stylish, charming, and above all authentic, in the sense that they reflect their owners' cares and tastes. As the readers of his column in Architectural Digest know, Flores-Vianna is as gifted a writer as he is an observant photographer. Here, Flores-Vianna's work is introduced by Amy Astley, editor of Architectural Digest and a longtime friend.

Beyond the Sea of Beer Excerpt :

This is a comprehensive history of immigrants from the historic lands of the Bohemian Crown and its successor states, including Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic, based on the painstaking lifetime research of the author. The reader will find lots of new information in this book that is not available elsewhere. The title of the book comes from a popular song of the famous Czech artistic duo, Voskovec and Werich, who described America in those words when they lived here, reflecting on their love for this country. It covers the period starting soon after the discovery of the New World to date. The emphasis is on the US, although Canada and Latin America are also covered. It covers the arrival and the settlement of the immigrants in various states and regions of America, their harsh beginnings, the establishment of their communities, and their organization. A separate section is devoted to the contributions of notable individuals in different areas of human endeavor, including Bohemians, Moravians, Bohemian Jews, and the Slovaks. These people excelled in just about every facet of human undertaking. Even though a total number of these immigrants were fewer than other ethnic groups, their accomplishments were phenomenal. Nothing like this has ever been published since the time Thomas Capek wrote his classic The Cechs (Bohemians) in America some one hundred years ago.
