I've lived on Maui for 22 years. I've been collecting movie posters and Hawaii posters for almost all of them. The John Cleese one is fantastic! Do you have any good Hawaii themed posters? I want some authentic pre-war ones, or anything that is unique and original.

Nice collection!

I'm not sure if I've ever seen any Hawaii posters but if I have they will be on one of the three pages featured here.
I'll keep my eyes for some for you in the future though.

Ahh MAD, those covers! It brings me back to days when it was blissful to be ignorant and what I wanted to know was packaged up and presented in the way I wanted to know it.
