HATS OFF TO DR. SEUSS – His Amazing Hat Collection is Traveling the United States Right Now!

February 9th, 2013

Hats Off To Dr Seuss Exhibit

This year marks the 75th anniversary of Dr. Seuss’s Classic Children Book, “The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins”. Random House has released a special anniversary edition ( holographic foil cover ) and, also in honor of the book, the Seuss Estate has decided to start the “Hats off to Dr. Seuss!” campaign.

Dr. Seuss Hat Collection Exhibit 1

Yes, Dr. Seuss was an extremely serious Hat Collector. He had hundreds of them and, in one way or another, many of them made their way into his artwork. So, Dr. Seuss’s widow, Audrey S. Geisel, decided to open up his collection of hats to the public for a never-before-seen glimpse at the amazing array of head wear. This is the first time any of these hats have traveled outside the Seuss Estate.
