Our buddy Matt Rainwaters is having a book release and signing party at Domy on Wednesday, October 5th, for his new book, titled Beard. For those of you who are unfamiliar, here’s the description by Chronicle Books, who published the book:

Hundreds of bearded men strutted their stuff at the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Anchorage, Alaska, and photographer Matthew Rainwaters was there to capture it all. This resulting collection of portraits features the bushiest, most stylish, and downright weirdest beards from around the world. Taken straight on, the photographs are stark and stunning the beards speak for themselves. Alongside the images are essays by several of the championship competitors, including $teven Ra$pa and his beard Prepostero. A magnificent showcase of chops, bristles, and whiskers, this book belongs on the shelf of any true facial hair connoisseur.

If you’re in Austin, be sure to make it out. Limited edition wrap-around covers will be produced for the first 50 books. And beer. Free beer. Good free beer.
