Would love to find a copy of this book, but can't find it mentioned anywhere. "Eigenverlag" means self-published. Is that the case, Steve?

hüte Hüte HÜTE - Von Kopf bis Hut. Kopfbedeckungen aus der Sammlung des Modemuseums im Münchner Stadtmuseum von 18. jahrhundert bis 2000
various Authors


HÜTE-Von-Kopf-bis-Hut-Kopfbedeckungen_resize.jpg


hardcover 264 pages
Münchner Stadtmuseum/Münchner Modemuseum 2000

This is a book consisting of a series of essays about particular hats and hatstyles that belong to the museum. It is in German and richly illustrated, but the essays are not all equally interesting of course and not all of them are about men's hats. Still worthwhile if you can read German and can get a copy. Recommended.

Chapeau – Das Westallgäu behütet die Welt: Die Geschichte der Hutproduktion in Lindenberg und Umgebung
Georg Grübel, Klaus Gietinger, Manfred Röhrl (Authors)

chapeau westallgau.jpg


Hardcover 264 pages
Kunstverlag Josef Fink 9 maart 2015

Another book in German. This time about the history of the hatindustry in southern Germany from a cottage industry to earn a little extra income in winter to a siginificant economic force. Focuses on the straw hat manufacturing mainly, but has a good deal of attention as well for the manufacturers that produced felt hats as well, like Aurel huber, Mayser-Milz and Ottmar Reich. Very well researched it offers lots of factual data. It has plenty of photos and illustrations as well and it is therefore highly recommended for those who can read German. No longer in print, but it looks like the publisher still has copies for sale.

Cowboys and Hatters: Bond Street, Sagebrush, and the Silver Screen
Debbie Henderson (Author)


cowboys-Hatters-Bond-Street-Sagebrush-the.jpg


Paperback – 96 pages
Kent State Museum January 1, 1996

It's another book by our friend Debbie Henderson. Here's a portrait of her by the way:
Henderson,Deb.jpg


Like all her books an interesting read. It was published to accompany an exhibition and consists of a few essays and a few interviews (much like her "Hat Talk" book). The connection between cinema and the hat-industry (including retail) isn't all that fleshed out in the book, but who cares? Worthwhile to get a copy, so highly recommended.

111 Darlings - a hat book
Magdalena Lueger (ed.)

111 darlings.jpeg


Hardcover ‏ : ‎ 288 pages
Metroverlag (September 1, 2014)

The book is an overview, mostly in pictures, but a good deal in text as well, of 111 years of the history of the Mühlbauer hat store, located in Vienna. Interesting in its own way, but not one to put high on the list. The focus isn't on men's hats in general or on the history of hats and their manufacture. You can still get a copy, but prices are up there. I got my copy from the shop and likely they still have them.

Omaggio al cappello - La Borsalino di Teresio Usuelli
Guido Barberis


omaggio4.jpg


Hardcover 288 pages
Libri Scheiwiller: 1989

A bit confusing that there are two books about Borsalino with the same name. The other one of course being the centennial book published in 1957. I feel somewhat ashamed that I haven't read this book yet, because it contains lots of information about the period from 1939 until 1979 in which Usuelli led the company. Well researched, with lots of factual data and footnotes it is certainly worth looking deeper into. My Italian is however virtually non-existent, so I'm missing too much of the information to fully appreciate the work that has been done here by the author. I'm working on a translation, but since this is a massive book, that is a lot of work. My copy is signed by a member of the Borsalino family, Giovanna Usuelli-Borsalino, which is a bonus. Highly recommended no matter what.
