These very colorful and decorative views showing the four main islands of Hawaii are drawn in a whimsical, humorous style much like Jo Mora's celebrated work of the same period. Cartoonish characters populate each with major roads and points of interest noted which actually make them fairly useful maps for the tourist. Each has a ribbon title banner and a descriptive cartouche. Issued by the Hawaii Tourist Bureau. These rotary gravure prints have never been folded and each is in vibrant color. An exceptional collection of rarely seen pictorial views.
