Spanning 18 years from 1999 to 2017, the resource documents the evolution of the hat trade over two decades and will serve as a prominent reference point for professionals and students wishing to expand their knowledge of this unique industry, says Exact Editions.
Each issue of The HAT Archive allows readers to explore, learn and understand how all aspects of the manufacturing chain work together to reach the crafted end product. Designed for hat buyers, retailers, designers and milliners alike, the magazine’s pages feature industry news, visits to factories and renowned designers, headwear shoots, designer sketchbooks, workroom processes and a directory of makers.
The comprehensive search function and straightforward navigational tools of the Exact Editions platform allow institutional users to seamlessly read and browse the archive across web and app devices from wherever they are. Denford Publishing will also be selling individual subscriptions directly through their website.
The HAT Archive is available in the Exact Editions institutional shop.
Co-Founder Carole Denford said: “We’re thrilled that the archive not only brings together all 74 editions of the magazine in an incredible index, but also that users can search a specific name or word and find all references instantly across the whole collection.”
Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, commented: “The archive has breathed new life into old issues of this fascinating title; there’s no doubt the resource will be instrumental in passing down The HAT Archive’s huge contribution to craft skills to the next generation.”
