In this innovative scrolling book, four different views (three literary and one pictorial) illustrate the spot
where Cook and his crew first discovered the charms of Hawaii.
The twenty-inch scrolling page is printed on Peter's handmade paper in five colors. Donna cut the illustration into linoleum while visiting Kealakekua and it is printed in a blue to yellow rainbow of colors.
The scroll is on a dowel through blocks of Koa wood, a tree native to that part of Hawaii.
The binding is handmade paper decorated with an ancient Hawaiian tapa design with a tapa cloth design formed in the pulp.
A small linoleum cut of a palm tree is on the front cover.
The four views are from: James Cook, Johnny Noble, Donna Thomas and Mark Twain.
This is #50 of an edition of 75.
