Description

Playful vintage bird's-eye view of Honolulu and the rest of the world - as Hawaiians see it.

The view is based on Saul Steinberg's famous New Yorker magazine cover "View of the World from 9th Avenue", which appeared in March 1976, and lampooned New Yorkers' alleged navel-gazing attitude.

The present view is one of a large series of images that riffed on the Steinberg concept while substituting other American and worldwide cities. Steinberg's original work has been the subject of almost-countless parodies, including one, by Columbia Pictures, which resulted in a copyright infringement lawsuit.

Condition Description
Somewhat sun-faded throughout the image, except where the frame blocked the light.
