'A Book of Beards' by author Justin Muir documents a series of brazen facial hairdos. Scraggly and meticulously coiffed strands have all been taken note of here with 86 black and white portraits. The men seem to speak through the photos, as if saying that their appearances took time, effort and dedication.
The proceeds derived from the A Book of Beards compilation will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Muir's brother suffered with cancer, and his dedication to the cause has been well-received by those with a love for beards as well as by those who despise them.
Although the project began locally in West Chester, Pennsylvania, it has since picked up speed throughout the nation and is now privy to 18 written pieces.
