Happy FrouFrou4youyou!

Millinery Books- My personal collection is small:

The Century of Hats by Susie Hopkins

Hats Design and Construction by Stella Remiasz (Plastic Comb – Nov 1986)

1,000 Hats by Norma Shephard (Hardcover – May 30, 2006)

Vintage Hats & Bonnets 1770-1970: Identification & Values by Susan Langley and John Dowling (Hardcover – Mar 1998) – Illustrated

I have 2 new ones you might also enjoy:

Women’s Hats of the 20th Century: For Designers and Collectors by Maureen Reilly and Mary Beth Detrich (Hardcover – Jan 1, 2000)

 And the 2009 release of Vintage Hats & Bonnets 1770-1970: Identification & Values by Susan Langley and John Dowling (Hardcover – Mar 1998) – Illustrated. This one had many improvements, including more Bes Ben. I love the reference to the Independence Day Bes Ben that sold in 1999 for $16+K, especially since I have admired it in person this year.

 Benjamin Green-Field needs a book too. The good news is that there is one in the works. The former curator from the Chicago History Museum is working on this project.

 What books do you have and love? Anyone know of resources for these? Yes Amazon, but not on Kindle yet. In my spare time I think I should tackle that challenge too.

The Flickr site, Froufrou4youyou, has  new Frou Frous added.

Have a lovely 29th day of 2010.
