American Barber Shop Book, M.Hunter

A Closer Look at a Disappearing Place

Welcome to a light-hearted, affectionate closer look at a classic American place: the neighborhood

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 has 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. Photos that certainly will flood the reader’s thoughts, providing memories of just yesterday, or of the years long gone by. The stories recall the soothing snip of scissors, the hum of the clippers, the idle talk and banter. Very entertaining.
