Synopsis: After World War II and to the early 1980s, artists, writers, architects, performers, spiritual seekers, freethinkers, political dissenters, and social revolutionists gathered in California, intent on creating a new way of seeing and interacting with the world. The result was an unstoppable counterculture that blazed its way across the American tableau, forever changing the national and international spirt of art and culture.

Learn more about the fascinating individuals and groups who created an art, architecture, music, and, often, a productive creative mayhem along the entire Pacific coast, from the remote reaches of northern California, south to the beaches of San Diego. Bohemian Highways is published in conjunction with the 2015 California Preservation Foundation Annual Conference.

Critique: A slipcase encloses this inspired anthology about the avant-garde social, cultural, and artistic movements of California from the 1950s to the 1980s. Second in the "Bohemian" series, Bohemian Highways: Art & Culture Abide Then Divide Along the California Coast is an extraordinary tour of striking developments in modern art history, packed with eyebrow-raising anecdotes as well as insights into the genesis of cultural transformation. Also highly recommended is the first volume in the series, "Bohemian Crossroads: Art & Culture Collide Then Subside on the Monterey Peninsula" (9780991134908, $29.95).
