The American Barbershop Book by William Marvy
Welcome to a light-hearted and affectionate closer look at a classic American place: the neighborhood barbershop.
Through entertaining photos and text, author Mic Hunter explores this fondly-remembered world of familiar smells, strewn hair clippings, and good conversation.
For over a decade, Hunter pursued a commitment to document the life of small, gradually disappearing, traditional barbershops.
More than 100 human interest style photos are reproduced in large full-page format. These are photos that will flood the reader's thoughts, providing memories of just yesterday, or of years long gone by. The stories recall the soothing snip of scissors, the hum of the clippers, the idle talk and banter. A very entertaining read.
