The Hawaiian Islands Book

  • The Hawaiian Islands: Their Resources, Agricultural, Commercial, and Financial.
  • Objective: Create a 30+ page book, choosing any text and subject. Focusing on consistency and solid structure throughout the text. 

    Process: The original text was intended to be a manifest for missionaries to travel to these small chain of islands to exploit them (Link to original text here.) The simple and clean aesthetic of the piece clashes with this meaning and appears inviting at first glance. I was very interested in this particular text because I am from Hawaii and the history of these islands is a mysterious one. The final was an 8 x 10 printed book.
