The Art of Book Design: Make Your Own Hats

Mrs. Gene Allen Martin. Make Your Own Hats. Boston, and New York, Houghton Mifflin Company, 1921.

I’m having a bad hair life. It’s baby fine and board straight and doesn’t take well to styling, so I almost always wear a hat when I go out. It’s hard to find stylish hats, though, and even harder to find one to fit my small head, so I’m going to keep this book handy. Who knows? I might decide to make myself a sweet little number with flowers and feathers and maybe even a few cherries on top. And netting. I’ll add a bit of netting that I can drape seductively over one eye. Oh, the possibilities.
