Front Cover Fridays #11

Hundreds of bearded men strutted their stuff at the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Anchorage, Alaska, and photographer Matthew Rainwaters was there to capture it all. This resulting collection of portraits features the bushiest, most stylish, and downright weirdest beards from around the world. Taken straight on, the photographs are stark and stunning the beards speak for themselves. Alongside the images are essays by several of the championship competitors, including $teven Ra$pa and his beard Prepostero. A magnificent showcase of chops, bristles, and whiskers, this book belongs on the shelf of any true facial hair connoisseur. [Amazon.com Book Description]

Absolutely amazing. Pretty sure I just found my newest coffee table book. I wish I’d heard about it prior to the iUMBC gift exchange last month; it would’ve made a terrific gift. Maybe this book is the inspiration you’ve needed to get that facial fro going. Here’s a quick sampling of the glory beyond this cover:


iUMBC highly recommends at least perusing the random beard/mustache generator over at worldbeardchampionships.com.
