Beautiful and wild print shirts evolved from the special culture of Hawaii, a paradise of mild climate, clean water, and abundant flowers. With their beautiful Island landscapes, colorful tropical flowers, Asian images, surfer boys, and hula girls, Aloha shirts are great fun to wear and own. In this expansive book, over 425 different shirts are displayed in clear color photographs along with an historical text, women’s clothing, 20 different button styles, and — for the first time — 229 researched manufacturer’s and retail labels which help to date and identify the shirts. Graphic designers will revel in the diversity of “Hawaiian” designs and the remarkably beautiful colors of the prints.
