HERE'S YOUR HAT by Bill Severn


Email this review


Chapeaux around the world and through the ages (as well as all the courtesies that have attended keeping them on and taking them off) are covered in this headgear history that is written with a hint of a smile. Present and past manufacturing processes that go into the making of a ""man's dignity and woman's folly"" are described in terms of equipment, material and style. There's even room for a short chapter on what the hat has meant to generations of magicians and a section on the phrases that refer to hat etiquette. A highly specialized and readable addition to histories of costume.
