Bohemians: A Graphic History

The counterculture that came to define bohemia spanned the Atlantic, from Walt Whitman to Josephine Baker, and from Gertrude Stein to Thelonius Monk. Bohemians is the graphic history of this movement and its illustrious figures, WC recovering the utopian ideas behind millennial communities, the rise of Greenwich Village and Harlem, the multiracial and radical jazz worlds, and West coast, Southern, and Midwest bohemias, among other scenes.

A beautiful, sweeping graphic story of America's sexual, political, artistic rebels, from Shakers to hipsters.


Drawn by an all-star cast of comics artists, Bohemians is a broad and entertaining account of the rebel impulse in American cultural history.
