If you ever wanted to explore visual and written dissertations on topics as hairy as the monobrow, Medusa, dreadlocks, Mormon beards, women’s beards, and, ahem, the Brazilian in a package that made you look cultured and cool, then Trunk: Volume One: Hair is just for you. Self-published by the Australian design firm Boccalatte, Trunk books are “small, sensual books filled with fascinating content. Each will explore a part of the human body through writing, art, and photography” and what better way to start the series than with the loveitorhateit topic of hair.

The ambitiously lengthy 348 are bound inside a lovely cloth-like paper cover that has been foil stamped clear with a few strands of hair. 200 of the books were produced with gold gilded edges. Fancy.

We wanted to produce something very tactile and beautiful, like a bible, something that would feel good in the hand.

Volume Two is currently in progress. The topic? Blood.
