<< Also, I understand that there is fabric that was used for the DB
Aloha shirts. Where can i find out more about this?
>>In Don Blanding's book "Joy Is An Inside Job" there are two pictures of
him wearing Aloha Shirts designed from his artwork. On the inside picture it
shows Don at a booksigning for "Joy..." and he is wearing a shirt with the
design for the poem "Scarecrow Watlz" which is on page 113 of that book. On
the dustjacket there is a closeup photo of Don outside wearing an aloha
shirt, the design of which looks very similar to his Vernon Kilns pottery
designs, profusion of island flowers...
I hope this helps... And I have heard that collectors have samples of
these shirts, but I personally have never seen one. With the collectors
interest in old time aloha shirts that have been around for the past 20 years
or so, I'd imagine that people have a lot of these in their collections and
may not be aware of what they have...
