Chapeaugraphy ActEric 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.

Did you know that you can do twenty-five astonishing hats with one felt-ring? You can do many more by experimenting yourself. But this excellent little booklet shows you twenty-five hats.

Another book which dedicates a whole chapter to the art of Chapeaugraphy is The Modern Conjurer.

The Modern ConjurerCharles 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.

If I would have to select one book this would be it. It is a book not many people know about. But you...
