John William Walker Zeiser reviews Bohemians: A Graphic History Edited by Paul Buhle and David Berger:

The etymological roots of bohemian—bohème in French—come from a mistake by nineteenth-century French journalists who incorrectly reported that the Romani people originated in Czech-Bohemia. It’s now known that they emigrated from the Indian subcontinent some thousand years ago, but since Shakespeare, Romani culture has been romanticized by any number of European writers, from John Clare to George Eliot to Guy de Maupassant. Writers and artists were fascinated with the supposed free-spiritedness, wanderlust, and musicality of the Romani, and all three themes feature prominently in the lives of the men and women in Bohemians: A Graphic History edited by Paul Buhle and David Berger.

  • Amazing collection of early Tuli zines at printedmatter.org“The Birth Press distributed experimental literary magazines and periodicals with beat and anarchist influences, including the titles…1001 WAYS TO LIVE WITHOUT WORKING, SELECTED FRUITS & NUTS, and YEAH MAGAZINE. 10 issues of YEAH magazine came out between 1961-1965, described by Kupferberg as ‘a satiric excursion; a sardonic review; a sarcastic epitome; a chronicle of the last days’.”
