Menus, matchbooks, movies and more: a nostalgic retrospective from the DeSoto Brown Collection. This book offers a lavish look at Island pop culture through postcards, movie posters, menus, matchbooks, sheet music and other memorabilia from 1905 to 1985.

The hundreds of images in Hawai‘i At Play are part of the personal collection of author DeSoto Brown, a Bishop Museum archivist with a keen interest in Island advertising and promotion over the years. The book includes rare photos and stylized renderings — sometimes lively, sometimes dreamy, always evocative — created by those who marketed the magic of the Islands both locally and abroad.
