Allan Peterkin has written an interesting and informative book that takes on the almighty mustache, aptly named '1000 Mustaches: A Cultural History of the Mo.'
The book comes out at a time when mustaches are making a comeback. Once the outdated look that people would always tell others to shave off, the mustache is growing in popularity again. This is in part because of Movember, a month dedicated to allowing men to grow out their facial hair in hopes of raising money for prostate cancer research. This has resulted in the appearance of facial hair on the upper lip of many celebrities, including Ashton Kutcher and James Franco.
Learn about the rich history of the mustache in 1000 Mustaches, which hits shelves in September of 2012.
