This is a 1950 Joseph Feher pictorial map of the Hawaiian Islands. The map depicts all eight of the major islands in the archipelago from Nihau and Kauai to Hawaii. Myriad illustrations populate the map, with each island's uniqueness coming through thanks to these illustrations. Vignettes celebrating Hawaiian daily life, culture, and history are present, as are sailing ships from every era and even an airliner. Numerous tropical fish surround the archipelago, including a Humuhumunukunukuapuaa and a butterfly fish, along with an octopus and a moray eel. An index to the right of the map details most of these illustrations, although a few are left out.
