Yes, 'tis true, a hundred hats are better than one, especially when you can wear them all at the same time! This is a great print.

oh, this print really brings tears to my eyes. it reminds me of my grandpa's hat and he was the coolest person i've ever met!

Art Kitten said...

Great print, reminds me of an artist who I went to college with. He did a series of this theme, with baseball hats, they were gorgeous, I wish I could find you a link of his work, he worked in monotypes, etching and woodcuts.

This print reminds me of the book "Caps for Sale" by Esphyr Slobodkina. Did anyone else read that in grade school?

i was just going to comment on the similarities to the "caps for sale" book. it was one of my childhood faves.

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
