Wanted to love this book, read through it hoping it wouldn't disappoint, finished the book wishing it was better. I love the idea of the bohemian luxury adventure life. The author did excel at highlighting iconic figures that have shaped the gypset image. However, the people she selected from the present to represent current gypsetters seemed nothing more than spoiled trust-fund babies who like to party. I was hoping to learn of artists who broke out of middle America and found themselves on an adventure of a lifetime paved by their artistry, bravado and luck. In the end it just seemed like the book highlighted a lot of rich people who like to do drugs. Such a disappointment.

I love the idea of this book and the author chose some interesting people to interview. However, this book majorly lacked pictures! I want to see more of the subject's lives and interiors. FYI- there is only one picture per subject (sometimes 2) and mostly exterior shots at that.

So overall I like this book. I am giving it 3 stars because some of the photos are terrible quality (pixelated to a point that I don't know how it made it past the editor's desk. Especially the two page spread of a waterfall shot) so if you are forgiving of this it's not bad... I did find it inspiring and mostly I bought it because I idealize the lifestyle some of these people have. Writing, and overall quality is hit and miss as you go through the book.

I was underwhelmed with the content of this book. If I had to point out one good thing about the book it is that they used a still photograph of the movie MORE and it caused me to search out that movie and so I guess that is the one positive thing about this book that I can pass on.

Format: Hardcover
If you've got any hankering for bohemian, ethnic, global traveller style pictures, photos and thoughts, here is where you'll find them. This book seems pretty niche, but the topic will appeal to lots of people for different reasons. There are great lashings of fashion, travel, music, lifestyle and art, as well as a surprising dose of history - the history of the gypsy people and the gypsy movement as it was coopted by artists and travellers around the globe. Fascinating reading, and while it is relatively text heavy, the images included have been selected with great restraint. Each one is very beautiful and evocative. The image of Talitha Getty on a Morroccan roof will give me a jolt every time I see it.

Such a great coffee table book! I want so desperately to be a Gypsetter after looking through this book-- to lead the idealized gypsy lifestyle, glamorously traveling and living stylishly yet simply, hopping flights to stay with friends all over the world, without responsibilities.... what a dream. although the author can sound pretentious, claiming to have led such an idyllic lifestyle herself, the lush images are inspirational for anyone interested in style, especially romantic bohemian 1960s-70s fashion, decor and lifestyle. If a book can be sexy, this is one SEXY BOOK.
