Volume one: Hair

Trunk books are a new series of personal, sensual books that are intended to be filled with beautiful and fascinating content. The idea is that they’re filled with treasure, just like an old trunk in the attic. Each book will focus on a part of the human body and be filed with short pieces of writing, art, and photography. There will be interviews, essays, fiction, photo essays, poems, and art works addressing multifarious dimensions of the theme. The series is aimed at an intelligent, engaged audience interested in both “high” and popular culture and is intended to have wide appeal.

Aspects of hair that get very little attention, cultural, historical, religious etc, are finally getting their shining moment. The cover is what actually caught my eye. Fact: I judge a book by its cover.

Also, the second volume is dedicated to Blood.
