This eBook is a comprehensive reference book for vintage hat collectors and sellers. Carry it with you to auctions, vintage stores, and estate sales so you can look up information to help you make informed purchases.
This eBook is interactive. Links in the text lead to internet resources including photos of great hats in the collections of art museums around the world. There are hundreds of color images in the book itself, and it interfaces with the Hatatorium Gallery, which contains over five thousand color photos of hats from the authors’ and their friends’ collections.
Most of the book is comprised of condensed reference guides on hat styles, materials and milliner labels. Within each of those chapters the entries are arranged alphabetically, with thumbnail photos beside the entries that are buttons that open albums in the Hatatorium gallery. Hundreds other links lead to photos of hats in online museums and other resources on the internet.
The milliner directory takes up two-thirds of the book — 183 pages in the full size pdf version. Approximately 1850 milliners & store labels are profiled, with links to images in 286 milliner photo albums in the Hatatorium website gallery. The styles section describes and provides photo examples of over 100 styles of hats. It also contains chapters on: materials, cleaning and restoration techniques, photographing hats, and additional resources.
Available in ebook formats: for Kindle, Nook, iPad and most other eReaders. Those without eReaders can use the interactive pdf format on their computers.
