Format: Hardcover
This is a stunning high quality thick glossy Hardback book. By far the best book available on Hawai`iana.
It really is excellent the range of items covered. It is well worth the price.
Since Captain James Cook discovered The Hawai`ian Islands in 1778. Hawai`i has been known as Paradise on Earth.
This book has very well laid out excellent colourful photographs of many Hawai`ian collectors items.
The art prints section is very good. Showing works from well known artists such as Gill and John Kelly.
The book covers maps, posters, postcards, Aloha shirts, jewelry, Hula dolls, hapa haole sheet music, ukuleles, ceramics, lamps and other interior decor items and much more.
If you love Hawai`i and are interested in Hawai`iana this is a must buy book.
It would also make a lovely present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful History! 1 April 2000
By Teresa Tucker-Davies - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I came across this book in my hotel lounge on the North Shore of Kaui last week, and couldn't put it down. So I've come looking to buy it here. Although it's designed for collectors (which I am not), and places emphasis on the values of the artifacts pictured, it's also designed to chronicle the unique history of our exotic Hawaiian Islands. Beautifully laid out, it includes images of picture postcards, Hawaiin shirt designs, garment labels, wood carvings, and glorious Hawaiian quilts - all accompanied by just enough historical lore to make it a very smart picture book indeed!

1.0 out of 5 stars A Useless New Edition 23 May 2002
By Gary L. Campbell - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Sixty dollars spent for a new cover, some corrections in the index and a general increase in values is about all that is new in this edition. If you have the older one, don't bother! I felt cheated.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hot Dogger's Delight 14 Nov. 2013
By gary becker - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a great reference for all of we old timers and new hot doggers alike. I found a photo in the book that virtually looks like my Surfboards Hawaii from the 60's and even personally knew many of the surfers mentioned throughout the book. The photographs were done very well and the entire book is a flashback into rare surf history...Ah, the good old days!

1.0 out of 5 stars Sooooo Many Mistakes in this book - shame shame shame! 19 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This instant-expert in Hawaiiana is evidently one of those people who move to Hawaii and think "it's much too good for the Hawaiians so I'll sell as much of it as I can". The photography is good but so many of the descriptions are soooooo wrong that I looked through it in slack-jawed amazement. Don't fall for this phoney-baloney aloha - the real Hawaii is not for sale, no matter how many books you write badly about it.
