Market Monday: Small Press New Releases - April 16, 2014

Bohemians: A Graphic History GN, includes work by Sharon Rudahl, Sabrina Jones, Afua Richardson, Rebecca Migdal, Summer McClinton, and Ellen Lindner

The nineteenth-century countercultures that came to define the bohemian lifestyle spanned both sides of the Atlantic, ranging 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, recovering the utopian ideas behind millennial communities, and covering the rise of Greenwich Village, the multiracial and radical jazz world, and West Coast and Midwest bohemians, among other scenes. Drawn by an all-star cast of comics artists, including rising figures like Sabrina Jones, Lance Tooks, and Summer McClinton, alongside established artists like Peter Kuper and Spain Rodriguez, Bohemians is a broad and entertaining account of the rebel impulse in American cultural history.

Caution, Leila Amos Pendleton, Frances Harper, and Effie Lee Newsome.
All the art will also be provided by African-American artists, including Afua Richardson (illustrating the cover and Langston Hughes’s “Danse Africaine”), Arie Monroe (adapting Zora Neale Hurston’s play Lawing and Jawing), and Leilani Hickerson (adapting Ethel M. Caution’s Buyers of Dreams)

The book will be released on December 27th, 2011 (something to spend your Amazon gift cards on :D)
