Synopsis

Born of the sensual Polynesian dance that was introduced to America by English explorers returning from Hawaii, the Hula Girl evolved into a symbol of exotci fantasy for American man. This collection of kitschy images pays tribute to the Hula Girl phenomenon.

... the phenomenon of the Hula Girl...
Exotic, romantic and a permanent lure to the tropical Pacific since the first explorers like Captain Cook caught a glimpse of this native, somehow special dance in the year 1778. Invited to a Hula performance on Kaua'i, all spectators fell instantly for the sight, and the saga of the beauty of the dancers spread all over the (known) world. Later on, when the protestant American missionaries arrived on those beautiful "Islands in the Sun" the Hula had to disappear - being a "Crude and Heathen Practice"!

But King David Kalakaua, also known as the "Merrie Monarch" in 1874 revived a lot of the traditional Hawai'ian culture, including the Hula. About this time the Ukulele and the Steel Guitar were added to the musical mix, and the ti leaf skirt became the dance costume...
Around the 1920s the hula girls had become totally included in the culture. The ti leaf skirt was changed into a grass skirt. With the increasing tourism to the Hawai'ian Islands the hula girl became essential for greeting the arriving guests, mostly with the great cruise ships of the Matson Line, and hand out to them the Leis - those beautiful chains made of Plumeria and other native flowers.

Until today the Merrie Monarch Festival occurs annually in the spring. It runs from Easter Sunday morning to Saturday evening. The first four days of the festival consist of free, non–competition events. These include performances by local and international halau at many venues around Hilo, as well as an arts and crafts fair. The Wednesday Ho'ike Night Free is exhibition very popular, and often features international hālau from other Pacific islands and Japan. A final non–competition event, the Merrie Monarch Parade, takes place on Saturday morning.

Das Buch bietet im kleinen Format eine Übersicht historischer Bilder von Südseeschönheiten. Meist alte Grafiken von Werbeplakaten, aber auch ein paar alte erotische Photos. Nett anzuschauen und für Sammler solcher Themen sicher interessant.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't Buy it for the Titillation 26. Mai 2013
Von 4321dud - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Five stars? Really? Hey, it's a niche market. I didn't read the articles; I just looked at the pictures. What you get with this book, after a short yet informative introduction, is vintage: photos, posters, post cards, album cover art, matchbook cover art, and the like. "In the clear waters of the bay, brown-skinned women in a 'state of nature' came alongside in canoes or swam around the ship. Some wore only a short skirt of grass or a bark-cloth loin skirt- a pa'u - which they readily stripped off. The young, unmarried women were crowned by flowers, with long brown or black hair cut short in back and long in front, some with bangs stained white with clay or crushed lime from coral." (from Scott Ridley's book "Morning of Fire" page 169 describing part of John Kendrick's Pacific odyssey about the fall of 1789) Stories of such visions reached Kendrick's men way before they actually saw such sights for themselves at the "Sandwich Islands". The allure of the "Hula" girl still appeals to the whimsical fancy of tourists today. The book "Hula: Vintage Hawaiian Graphics" captures early 20th Century images of marketing the Hula girl hype. This book is fun to leaf through. It will definitely complement your collection of Hawaii & tiki accoutrements. There is some nudity but mostly by art rather than photo. Some of the photographs are a touch disconcerting as not all of the ladies posing with all of the men looked completely at ease. Paradise, I suppose, is more readily found in art than in reality. Hey, that's what books are for.

The Wednesday Ho'ike Night Free is exhibition very popular, and often features international hālau from other Pacific islands and Japan. A final non–competition event, the Merrie Monarch Parade, takes place on Saturday morning.
The festivities culminate in the annual competitions held at the Edith Kanakaʻole Multipurpose Stadium in Hoʻolulu Park. Dancers perform individually and in groups, with seven minutes allowed for each performance.
Thursday night is the first competition event. Individual female dancers compete for the title of Miss Aloha Hula. Dancers perform in both modern (hula ʻauana) and traditional (hula kahiko) forms of hula, as well as chant (oli).

So, all YOU interested in the old tradition of the Hula and its Girls - grab this wonderful nostalgic book. It is full of hundreds of black/white photos from around 1900, including a lot of semi-nudes, becoming more colourful with the years - and also much more dressed... :)
The posters - mostly publicity or for the Hawai'ian Islands or the travel companies - were always multicoloured - and sufficently discreet.

A must-have for all the friends and lovers of the beautiful vulcanic rocks known as the Hawai'ian Islands!

PS: The introduction is in English, German and French.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Rock -A-Hula" 28. September 2005
Von J. F Kopeck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book has some great vintage pics in it. My only complaint is that some of these photos are racey and caution must be adheared before laying this book on the coffee table. It would of showed the hula customs even without all the bare-breasted shot that are very unsuitable for many folks ,young and old alike. Besides that this book captures a lot of old (pre WWII)shots that you arn't going to find elseware.
