Bohemian Taboo Stories book crowdfunding

5/28/2019 — 7/12/2019, 12:00

Are you interested in human sexuality? Then you might be interested to know that we have finished a book called Bohemian Taboo Stories. A book about people whose work touches on sexuality and eroticism. Thirteen co-authors, graphic designers, photographers and illustrators worked on its content for almost two years.  But it is easier to find sponsors for a political campaign for the Castle than for something related to sexuality, eroticism or nudity. That's why we decided to hold a fundraiser on HitHit and ask you to help us so we can publish this literary and visually beautiful book this fall. But Bohemian Taboo doesn't want to stick with one book. If we see that you are interested in this topic, we will create a platform suitable for education, personal development, support of contemporary art, alternative communities, research, and assisting in activities that overlap into the realm of human sexuality. 

We need 390,000 CZK to publish the book. But the value of something that a team of people has been working on with passion for years is very difficult to measure. The cost of producing a single copy is the value of a medium supermarket shop. But the more you donate, the more beautiful the book we can make for you. On better paper, in a cool binding, we'd like to make an e-book and an audiobook, and we'll make the book itself with extras to give it an even more unique feel. But we have a lot of other things planned. If you are interested in our project and support us, we would like to organize a few more side things for you. Exhibitions, author readings, lectures, workshops... We would also like to do Bohemian Taboo merchandies and an e-shop with aesthetic and valuable things related to sexuality, erotic art, film and design accessories. We have a lot of plans.
