In 1944, The Outdoor Circle published a lovely book called “Trees and Flowers of the Hawaiian Islands”, which included beautiful hand-tinted photos, a process popular at the time before color photography was widely available. The photographers and botanists who are featured in the book were outstanding in their fields. Half a century later, The Outdoor Circle had professionally produced reprints made of some of these vintage photos, and we have them for sale.
These are one-of-a-kind reproductions and are beautifully matted and framed in two sizes, 12”x15” ($75) and 17”x21” ($125). There are only 12 available, as shown here. A description taken from the original book, describing each photo, is included on the back of each frame, a sample of which is shown here.
