The One Dozen Hats of Dr. Seuss
There is a new exhibit at the NYPL of a dozen hats that actually belonged to Dr. Seuss himself! An article in the New York Times gives more details about the exhibit which will be on view only through next Monday February 11! I wish the exhibit lasted longer and was bigger! Dr. Seuss apparently had hundreds of hats and I wonder why only such a small fraction will be on view. The hats were an inspiration for many books, particularly the The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, which is the one place I think fewer hats would have been better. That book needed a little more editing... 100 hats would have been enough!
