Bohemianism is a way of life, a state of mind and an atmosphere. It is not a trend, it's a timeless movement. Bohemian Manifesto is the first book to distil and categorise all the ingredients of Bohemian life. In witty and engaging style, Laren Stover examines the contents of a Bohemian closet, bathroom and bookshelf. She explains the allure of absinthe, why it isn't wise to leave a Bohemian unattended in your house - you could return to find nude nymphs painted on your lampshade - and how to identify what type of Bohemian you might be.
