Some brief overview of this book

A groundbreaking new series from Restless Books: In original essays, a diverse group of writers will take readers on a guided tour of that most intimate terrain: their own faces.

Our inspiration for The Face comes from a passage by Jorge Luis Borges: “As the years go by, he peoples a space with images of provinces, kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms, instruments, stars, horses, and individuals. A short time before he dies, he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines traces the lineaments of his own face.” What stories does a face tell?A face accumulates signs of wear and betrays our habits of living. Above all, our faces are our most distinctive signatures; flesh-and-blood emblems of the identities we carry around invisibly.
