The Art of Chapeaugraphy by John G. Hamley

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. You will find hats with names such as 'Jester', 'Soldier', and 'Nun'. Chapeaugraphy is not a magic act but great entertainment. Another book which dedicates a whole chapter to the art of Chapeaugraphy is The Modern Conjurer.

Somewhat disappointing pamphlet. In some cases, it looks like the hat created is larger than would be possible with the given starting piece of fabric. Some hats require the aid of a "clip". There are about 25 hats described. The book comes in HTML format and is 15 web pages.
