The Centennial Edition

Ho‘oulumāhiehie's version of this ancient saga is one volume of this exquisite Centennial Edition set, its companion a complete English translation by Puakea Nogelmeier. Both volumes are beautifully illustrated with fine, full-color reproductions of Solomon Enos' images, commissioned for this project. Afterword, commentary and multiple indexes are included in the language of each text. Published by Awaiaulu Press, Honolulu, Hawaii.

The Centennial Edition, in two elegant versions, was designed by Barbara Pope. The text is composed in Minion and Uncial types, printed on premium text paper, Monadnock Dulcet, and embellished with marbled endsheets and a print by kapa artist Pua Van Dorpe. Each book is a large folio of nearly 500 pages measuring 9 x 12 inches. The two special edition versions, boxed and slipcased, are described at left.
