11. Hipster Christianity: When Church and Cool Collide (2010)

Best Hipster Books That You NeedInsider twentysomething Christian journalist Brett McCracken has grown up in the evangelical Christian subculture and observed the recent shift away from the "stained glass and steeples" old guard of traditional Christianity to a more unorthodox, stylized 21st-century church. This change raises a big issue for the church in our postmodern world: the question of cool. The question is whether or not Christianity can be, should be, or is, in fact, cool. This probing book is about an emerging category of Christians McCracken calls "Christian hipsters"–the unlikely fusion of the American obsessions with worldly…

Books shelved as hipster: Office Girl by Joe Meno, On the Road by Jack Kerouac, Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto by Chuck Klosterman, Hipster Colour | Hipsters Books | ISBN: 9780368704741 | Kostenloser Versand für alle Bücher mit Versand und Verkauf duch Amazon. The Hipster Coloring Book is the first book in my collection that leaves space in the design to add your own embellishments. The book also provides coloring, color theory (how to use the color wheel), and patterning techniques plus some fully colored examples to get you started. “Hipster” has a nebulous definition, maybe intentionally so. A quick skim through the index of the n+1 book, What Was the Hipster?, which highlights words and phrases such as Bike: fixed gear, Midwestern sensibilities, ironic, gentrification, twee, and cafe, can help to piece together a semi-lucid image.

We highly recommend you to buy all paper or e-books in a legal way, for example, on Amazon. But sometimes it might be a need to dig deeper beyond the shiny book cover. Before making a purchase, you can visit resources like Genesis and download some hipster books mentioned below at your own risk. Once again, we do not host any illegal or copyrighted files, but simply give our visitors a choice and hope they will make a wise decision.
