I have a nice collection of books, price guides, and brochures to help me learn more about this world-wide community built around the artistry of a talented nun from Germany. Much of the literature on this subject doesn’t change much but the price of the items has become quite volatile the last few years and having the correct information that is up-to-date is invaluable.  When making a decision on whether to purchase a piece and how much you are willing to give for it, you need to have the proper information. These references can help you make an accurate, educated decision closer to what you are looking for.

The following is a quick reference to what I was able to locate online but is definitely not complete. The list will be updated periodically as new pertinent material is discovered. There is no preference given here, just a chronological and alphabetical list, otherwise. Most of the links refer to locations on Amazon but may be located on other sites for competitive prices.  The magazines are free to download from HummelGifts.com, the online store where you can search for all current M.I. Hummel figurines. The table below is a list of some of the best examples where you will find the reference material you are seeking.
