Wednesday Cover Story: Mo’ Moustaches Please (there’s a prize in it!)

We would love to join in the spirit of Movember, but neither I, nor my colleagues in the A&B office will be sporting a moustache this month. As an all-women office, we’re more inclined to go to great lengths to hide any hint of facial hair, let alone show it off.  So, who could we find to sport the Mo for Allison & Busby? I toyed with the idea of using our postman or courier or delivery man from the printers as our A&B poster boy…but no, not a moustache in sight. But then, I spotted him…right there on our archive shelves.

So here I present to you, The A&B Mo – sported by the great D H Lawrence on the cover of Son & Lover: The Young D H Lawrence, by Phillip Callow.

So, there you have it. The novel way (pun intended) to support Movember without sprouting your own tash. Scour your shelves or your brains and tell me the title of a book with a Mo on the cover and you’ll automatically enter a giveway for a gorgeous copy of The Affair Of…Omnibus, by James Anderson (set in the 1930s when I’m sure there were plenty of ‘voluntarily-grown’ moustaches around…)

Enter by midnight 30 November by commenting below, on our Facebook page or via twitter #Mogiveaway and share your Mo covers with the world! (T&C here)

  1. Agatha Christie’s Poirot: A Celebration Of The Great Detective

    I have this book, Poirot has one of the most iconic mo’s!

  2. Death on a Branch Line by Andrew Martin.

    Murder from an earlier era when railways ran on time and moustaches could conceal a sandwich from the buffet.

    I would like to enter the above in your Movember prize draw.

  3. IHave found a wonderful book on the subject and you could take your pick – A Guide to the Bizarre Beards and Magnificent Moustaches of Hindustan. These guys do it with style!

  4. As Hubby is a keen F1 fan I can remember the book Nigel Mansell – my autobiography on my coffee table for too long!

  5. Having had a good look at my bookshelves I found a book.

    My copy of Agatha Christie’s Double Sin. On the cover has the siloettes of Marple and Poirot, and of course Poirot has a moustache. Does that count??

  6. Rats, everyone’s done the easy ones!

    My copy of Ashworth Hall by Anne Perry (Harper Collins aperback, 1999) has three moustaches and a full beard!
