Book: One Thousand Beards

Early cave paintings show Stone Agers plucking out facial hair with sea shells, suggesting that the decision to grow or not grow a beard is almost as old as human society itself.

Allan Peterkin’s One Thousand Beards: A Cultural History of Facial Hair traces the beard’s (and the razor’s) storied past, including styles, regulations and cultural significance from the ancient Egyptians to the present day.
