Images of America History Books

The Images of America series chronicles the history of small towns and downtowns across the country. Many FANHS members authored books in the 17-book series that feature the story of Filipinos across America. Each title features more than 200 vintage images, capturing often forgotten bygone times and bringing to life the people, places, and events that defined a community. Books are available through Arcadia Publishing or your local bookstore or online book seller. A limited number of books are available from the FANHS National Office in Seattle (by appointment only), at the FANHS National Museum, or from some FANHS Chapters.
