By Eugenia Kim. Quick, Easy Hatmaking for the Downtown Girl. With Technical Writing By Joanne Paek.
The fact that millinery
can be sculpture sitting atop one's head can be a problem if the wearer
isn't satisfied being simply a pedestal. Eugenia Kim understands that
hats can fit comfortably and may even be practical as well as venture
into the realm of fine art. This delightful book will satisfy the
whimsy of both hat lovers and hat makers. Kim is a serious milliner
who adds humor to her work's objective (chapter titles are also a hoot
e.g. "Cloche Encounters" and "The Prodigal Sun Hat"). The book comes
complete with instructions and patterns for making the featured hats, hat care information, a feather guide, and an abbreviated glossary.
