About this project
We are raising funds to pay the artists who have already done the artwork for a vivid, exciting, graphic history of American Bohemia. The book will be published in the fall of 2013, but in this industry, the artists are paid by the editors, not the publisher. Unfortunately, expected funds from an angel have fallen short, and we need to pay the artists for the work they've already completed. Here is the Table of Contents of the book:
CHAPTER ONE: BOHEMIANS AND UTOPIANS
CHAPTER TWO: WALT WHITMAN
CHAPTER THREE: VICTORIAN BOHEMIA
CHAPTER FOUR: VILLAGE DAYS
CHAPTER FIVE: ARTIST AND EXPERIMENT
CHAPTER SIX: OUTWARD BOUND
CHAPTER SEVEN: INTERNAL EXILE – AND RETURN
CHAPTER EIGHT: BOHEMIANS AND HIPSTERS
CHAPTER NINE: THE LOOK BACK
The book encompasses the entire history of American Bohemia, from its beginnings in the 1840s up to the 1950s. There are a total of 33 sections of the book, done by 15 artists, each with a distinct style. When published, it will serve as a virtual textbook of Bohemia.
Risks and challenges
There are virtually no risks to completing this project. "Bohemians" has already been accepted by a major publisher, Verso Books, and almost all the artwork for the book has already been produced. What we are asking for is funds to pay the artists for the work they've already done.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
