I remember at least one post about this book, but I just got my christmas present from my best friend (Yes, in July... haha) and she got me Dreads by Francesco Mastalia and Alfonse Pagano. I love it! I've been drooling over it for awhile but none of the local bookstores have had it in stock and it took her this long to get one ordered in for me. Anyways, it was worth it. The pictures all all fantastic. I wasn't expecting the variety of cultures and ethnicities represented within, and it was a pleasant surprise. Some of the little stories that go along with them are kind of 'meh', but it was the pictures I was after all along anyhow. If nothing else I've got myself a fantastic coffee table book for a long time to come :)
Just thought I'd throw this out there in case anyone is humming and hawing about whether or not to pick it up. If you love photography and you love dreads, I'd definitely recommend it.
