Brief History of the Smile
Angus Trumble (au)
What is a smile? An involuntary reflex? A mating call? Or merely a default position? How does it work? What can it mean? In this charming & distinctive work, art historian Angus Trumble traces the evolution of the open smile from lascivious to wise & back again, bringing all his expertise as a writer, historian, & thinker to bear. The “New York Times” has praised this book: “Through rigorous research & unmistakable curiosity, Trumble pushes his subject to unexpectedly rewarding depths.” “A beautifully written book.” “Thanks to Trumble’s curiosity, breadth of knowledge & naughty sense of humor, the overall effect is delightful.” “A charming romp through the evolution of the grin, from Mona Lisa to Ozzy Osbourne.” Illustrations.
