Library Journal
Parisian milliner Ramousse and Gambrelle (coauthor, Studio Secrets: Mosaics) celebrate the lost art of hat making with this lavishly illustrated volume. It begins with a brief history of millinery, followed by a tour of Ramousse's workroom, including a visit to the home of Albertine Galanter, a 92-year-old milliner who worked during millinery's midcentury golden age. It's unlikely that the average reader will have access to the specialized tools and materials used by professional milliners, but Ramousse provides a variety of patterns that can be easily replicated. Theatrical costumers will appreciate the attention to detail and technique.
