"The Romance of Hats" is a beautifully illustrated book extolling hats, their makers, and those who wear them. I enjoy looking through this book for ideas or just to relax.

"The Romance of Hats" is excellent eye candy. I keep borrowing it from the library; I really must buy it so I can forget about due dates. It has no millinery instruction. It's full of photographs, not drawings, except for little impressionist masterpieces here and there. It's mercifully free of novelty hats. Look elsewhere if you want pictures of hats that look like historical buildings, vegetation, musical instruments or what-have-you.

I love the selections of hats in this book. Classics, they tend towards the old fashioned, but made by contemporary milliners with materials available today, which I find inspiring. Just the pictures of what can be done to dress a hat with a swath of ribbon, lace or dried flowers is enough to make you want to do that right now.

It's a great book for flipping through, over and over again, for you and your friends and visitors.

All kinds of hats from different places and times. Good for ideas on what to look for in garage or estate sales, and for ideas on making hats too. Gives you inspiration for decorating some of your own, which is why I bought this. Lots of pretty photos.
