Beard + Book

Gift Idea #2

This book not only exhibits the natural beauty of beards but the proceeds from the first pressing will go towards helping a friend fight testicular cancer.
 Additional Proceeds will go towards the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Here is a lovely entry from the book:


by Mike Cummings
If the age of a tree can be determined by the rings it contains within, consider a man's whiskers his own measuring stick. They come in all shapes and sizes. And the eventually will all turn grey at some point. Long or short, thick or thin, unkempt or cropped, the hair on a man's chin can say a lot about the time he has spent on this planet.
Growing a beard is not something that can be rushed. It's a slow process, staring at you in the mirror everyday. It is the epitome of the word "time". And time can do a lot of things to a man. It can build him memories, friendships, and loves. It can take those very things away.
The question I am inevitably asked when meeting someone is "I wish I could grow a beard like that. How do you do it?" To which I respond with the only truthful answer there is...time.
