|The Inspirational Moustache|
|Publication date||October 10, 2011|
There is an old English proverb that goes "a man without a moustache is like a cup of tea without sugar." In our calorie-conscious age, tea has tended to come sugar-free for many years now, but the moustache is making a comeback! In fashion, in craft and on the upper lips of hipsters everywhere, the moustache--the soup strainer, nose neighbor, lip tickler, face foliage, slipped eyebrow--is back and here to stay. The Inspirational Moustache is a humorous survey of the millennial moustache boom. Edited by Ziggy Hanaor (of Making Stufffame), it features photographs, illustrations, short, witty texts, a handful of moustache-related craft ideas, a summary of key moustache styles (pencil, handlebar, walrus, Fu Manchu, etc), plus funky visuals of such key cultural moments as Movember (i.e. November: moustache awareness-raising month), finger moustaches and of course the World Beard and Moustache Championships.
