Chapeaugraphy

What a clever concept. Take a felt ring. Fold it in various ways and put it on your head. Make appropriate faces, sing or speak, and you could have a blockbuster. It is like magic when the performer transforms from Napolean to nun, then to soldier, wizard and finishes as artist.

Eric Hawkesworth
Chapeaugraphy Act by Eric Hawkesworth

Here is an up to date Chapeagraphy Act done with two colored plastic "hat brims" that you can prepare yourself and a boy and a girl from the audience.

Many different hats are twisted and formed from a simple chapeau brim and the performer, with the assistance of two members of the audience, creates a whole procession of interesting characters from the pages of history. In the routine, two chapeau brims are used, a pink one for the females and a blue brim for the male characters enabling each new hat shape to be produced in an alternating color.

Detailed instructions with many pictures...

Charles Lang Neil
The Modern Conjurer by Charles Lang Neil

This is my favorite magic book. The reason for this is that it was a groundbreaking book at the time it appeared and its contents is excellent. It was the first magic book that had photos instead of drawings or engravings throughout. And the contents is fantastic. It is one of the few books with a large chapter on chapeaugraphy. Add to this great chapters on shadowgraphy, plate spinning and paper folding. A large part is devoted to card magic, magic with coins, balls, and handkerchiefs, and much much more. If I would have to select one book this would be it. It is a book not many people know about. But you...
