Beards are in vogue and it’s a trend that gay men have embraced – after all, it’s an instant infusion of masculinity! This book is more like Clark’s previous work ‘Porn’ (which featured significant text and a great array of images) rather than a typical Bruno Gmünder photography title. The writing is also extremely diverse and full of fascinating details. Naturally, Clarke explores the 1970s clone look; but he also examines beards and religion, 10,000 years of beard history, beards in porn, in movies, in music, and in fashion, and of course the current fad − beards and hipsters. The images are superb and although there are numerous porn-stars featured (such as Aybars, Al Parker, and Steve Cruz) and even an Australian rugby player (David Williams aka The Wolfman), it is the great array of vintage photographs that really elevate this book into something unique and special.
