The Book of ‘Bert’: High Class Stars with Some High Class ‘Stache, a pop culture humor book centering on celebrities and their praiseworthy mustaches, written by Jon Chattman and Rich Tarantino is seeking a new publisher after the book’s existing one (Triad Publishing Group of Sarasota) shut its doors.
“Mustaches can’t seem to get any respect these days,” Chattman said in a prepared statement.
Chattman and Tarantino took the world by storm last April - notably Manhattan where they passed out thousands of self-adhesive mustaches to commemorate the book’s release – by receiving kudos from the mustache community, and garnering national and local attention from the likes of the New York Post, The Journal News, the Chicago Sun-Times and The Howard Stern Show. The New York Daily News, in particular, referred to it as “The definitive text on celebrity mustaches” while Ontario rockers The Guys lent their “song Man With a Moustache” to be the official theme song for the book.
But, lately there’s been trouble in mustache paradise.
An online petition to get Bert a new publisher has taken place on Facebook. (http://www.new.facebook.com/group.php?gid=24561494378). « less
