The Hawaiian Collection is a project featuring the Hawaiian landscape photography of Don Hurzeler, Linda Hurzeler, C.J. Kale and Nick Selway. Together, these four individuals are the photographers of the Lava Light Galleries. Kua Bay Publishing is the publisher of the book.
The book is smoking hot (kind of fits with the lava theme of our galleries). Here are the details…
It is a big boy…it weighs about eight pounds. It is thirteen and a half inches long and 11 inches wide. There are 216 pages and about 200 photos.
It contains the very best of our photos from the Hawaiian Islands…thus the name The Hawaiian Collection. For those of you who have visited our Waikoloa Lava Light Gallery, the book contains nearly all of the Hawaiian photos that we have displayed in our gallery and some you have never seen.
The cover is unique…for perhaps the first time ever in publishing, our designer de-bossed an area of the cover and sank a 9.5 by 5.5 inch metal image into the cover, so it is flush with the cover itself. It just looks amazing and we are completely stoked with the design.
The photos are spread across one or two pages. We used special inks and paper and did a minimum of writing. The final product is just photo after photo. The book is the perfect answer for those who have told us…”We love your photos, but we’ve run out of wall space.” or “It is hard to decide which one of your images we want to buy…we like them all.” Well…here they are…all of them…and happily, they take up no wall space.
Our print run is small. We printed 2500 of the books and 500 Limited Edition books. The Limited Edition is signed and numbered, comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, is protected by a clamshell box that has to be seen to be appreciated…it looks like a lava lake in red/orange/gold and black. Once these books are sold, they are gone. We may publish other exceptional books in the future, but we will not do a second printing of this original book…that is a promise.
The least expensive image in our Waikoloa Lava Light Gallery is $350 plus shipping for a 12 inch by 18 inch metal print. The book is $375 for about 200 of our images plus the metal image on the cover. The shipping is free.
The Limited Edition is $575 and that also includes the shipping.
So, just drop Don an email at [email protected] , if you would like to make a purchase. We will make the process simple and fast…and we think you will absolutely love The Hawaiian Collection.
Don and Linda, C.J and Nick
