Love for “A Book of Beards”

Seriously. Justin James Muir takes a good photo.

When he sent me a few sample portraits for his beard book, titled A Book of Beards, my (bearded) jaw dropped. So we threw together a snappy website in about seven days. Behold:

The site is responsive, which was a slight challenge given the nature of the desktop version. But I was working with some of the best photos my computer has ever touched, so I was determined to make it work. Check out the book, which is simply gorgeous (and fights cancer!).


So I encourage you to at the very least check out the site (which has been featured on Time and hundreds of blogs) and Justin’s great work. But really, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy. It is legitimately not-for-profit, so you’ll be getting a beautiful book of the most insane facial hair you’ve ever seen…and you’re fighting cancer.

What are you waiting for?
