Our heavily anticipated book on hair art was inspired by the Mütter's current exhibit "Woven Strands: The Art of Human Hair Work," on display until September 16th, 2018.

Using pieces from the exhibit, further explanation and detail is given to the various techniques used to produce the artwork. This 80-page, 6x9" book highlights these unique and exquisite pieces of art, bringing to light a traditional folk art that was prominent in the 18th and 19th century.

A final chapter includes hair-focused specimens from the museum's own collection, providing further insight into the many ways in which hair can present itself.
