Hummel Publications

     There is a lot of excellent literature written by some of the world’s experts on the subject of M.I. Hummel. There are even two books published by the lady herself as you can find copies for yourself below. The catalogs and price lists include not only the large number of figurines but also plates, crystal, cards, Christmas decoration, and many other items. Click on the links provided to access more details on the information you seek! Additional free copies of some of these may also be located on the Hummel Value/Prices page within this web site.

     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.

M.I. Hummel Collection Log and Reference List

     I created a log sheet in Microsoft Word and ported it over into an Acrobat PDF format as well. The Word document is expandable/modifiable while the PDF file is more for writing in your collection with a pen or pencil. Both are free for your use and I welcome any comments or criticism you may have that would make this a better tool for keeping track of your collection of figurines as well as your publications. You can set up the Word file and make it more useful by adding rows to update your collection in order of the HUM number or by alphabetically or sort the rows using the nice features in Word. Here are the links for your free copy of the M.I. Hummel Collector’s Log in MS Word and Acrobat PDF formats.

     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.
