The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins 75th Anniversary Print
Beginning February 21, 2013, The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection celebrates the 75th anniversary of The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins with an exclusive Estate Edition, paying tribute to those who, like Theodor Seuss Geisel, live adventurous lives as the “wearers of many hats.”
The roles we play throughout our lifetime emerge as the biographical metaphors marking the story of a unique life. For Dr. Seuss, the list of “figurative hats” worn throughout his years include advertising man and publicist, editorial cartoonist and essayist; WWII Army Major and Seuss Navy Admiral; producer, documentarian, screenwriter, editor, set designer, and filmmaker; surrealist, abstractionist, and expressionist painter; museum curator and exhibition designer; illustrator, sculptor, author, poet, and publisher; Caldecott Honoree, Academy Award and Pulitzer Prize Winner, and the recipient of eight honorary doctorates; Dr. Seuss was a lifelong friend, beloved husband, silent philanthropist—and, for millions of children, their teacher and teller of tales.
Be it parent, grandparent, teacher or friend, in the end it is your distinctive collection of “figurative hats” which describe to all who you are and how you lived your life.
