Hawaiian featherwork objects are among the most treasured objects to be found in the Pacific collections of the world's greatest museums. To date, however, there has been very little either written or said about these beautiful works of art. John Dominis Holt's The Art of Featherwork in Old Hawai'i is thus distinguished as the first complete book ever published about this cultural genre. Here is a spectacular collection of family legends, chants, scholarly commentaries, and an exquisite gallery of photographs.
