Historian DeSoto Brown and graphic artist Anne Ellett have combed the archives to bring back to the light nostalgic images of the Hawaiian Islands between 1910 and 1950. These illustrations depict Hawaii's commercial graphic arts at its most glorious. Before the days of color photography, Hawaii called with romantic images of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach, hula girls and beach boys, ukuleles, flowers and fish, in an evocative richness rarely equaled in the history of regional graphic art.
