This original and captivating celebration of Salvador Dalí’s life and career traces the countless, often outrageous, ways the artist employed his moustache to brilliant effect. Whether curled into a figure 8 or splayed like a cat’s whiskers, Dalí’s moustache is arguably the world’s most famous facial hair. But when asked to explain why he styled it in such bizarre and seemingly comic fashion, the artist remarked that his moustache was "the most serious part" of his personality.


In this book, Boris Friedewald tells the life story of the renowned Spanish Surrealist through the various moustache styles he had throughout his life. Illustrated with many intriguing photographs of the artist and his ever-changing moustache, this book describes how Dalí cared for and styled his facial hair, and shows how it influenced many artists in his wake.
