THE HAT BOOK. Photographs by Rodney Smith. Design by Leslie Smolan

New York: Nan A. Talese, (1993). First edition. Hardcover. 16mo. A hat is a flag, a shield, a bit of armour, and the badge of femininity. A hat is the difference between wearing clothes and wearing a costume; it's the difference between being dressed and being dressed up, it's the difference between looking adequate and looking your best. A hat is to be stylish in, to glow under, to flirt beneath, to make all others seems jealous over, and to make all men feel masculine about. A piece of magic is a hat. Essays by Richard Bernstein, Mary D. Kierstead, Michael Malone, Viola Salzedo-Gramm, Susan Richards Shreve, Patricia Underwood, and Dana S. Wickware. Unpaginated, with photography index, a resource guide, biographies, and acknowledgements. A fine copy elegantly buond in black cloth with front cover photo illustration (issued sans jacket).
