While writing THE ARTIST AND THE KING I did a little research on the construction of the Maid Marian hat that my character, Daphne, makes. Thank you to The Girl Inspired for the beautiful hats in the link below! Thank you too, to Rosemarie Gulla for all of those magnificent hats at The Randolph County Library.
