Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book contains men's and women's hats in a book of photographs. Should be considered an art book, though the pictures are cited for location and year when known. All photographs of people wearing hats around the world. Note this is a small hardbound book with dustcover. Should not be considered a book for source material of the making or wearing of hats, except for cultural or historical puposes.
