Kaluaikoolau, the book. 1912.

[Found under: “Local News”]

Because of the desire to liquidate the story book of Kaluaikoolau which are stacked up in the publishing office, one of those books will be given away for free to each person who buys the Kuokoa directly from the office of the Hawaiian Gazette Company, beginning this morning.

[Up until this time, the books were going for 10 cents each, if you picked them up at the Hawaiian Gazette Co. office, or 15 cents if you wanted them sent to the country. See ad below.]

To advertise the celebration of the birth of Washington, in the coming month of February, the Promotion Committee has chosen the picture of Duke Kahanamoku, the swimming champion of the world, standing atop of his surfboard, as a picture to send all over the world as advertisement to benefit this Territory.

This newspaper company received the contract to create and print some thousands of these illustrations, to be sent all over, and posted at places where crowds assemble; it was finished a month before the date of completion as set in the contract.

This image of Duke Kahanamoku is done in multiple colors, under the direction of the art department of this publishing company.
