so this is BOT2 ? All new everything. The next chaper in the BOT? What? Whats in it and why didn't we hear about it. I knew that the Witco book was coming out and I thought that it was Svens next book. I just hope that there aren't three Langs. in it. But if it made, whats done it done.



It is indeed unfortunate that Amazon does not list the full title of the book:

"TIKI MODERN and the Wild World of Witco"

but, as you certainly have read:

"...Kirsten shows us how primitivism and modernism were two sides of the same coin in the 1950s and 60s. Decor deities and ersatz ancestors outrageously merged in the modern brutalist furniture from the house of WITCO, a company that outfitted Elvis Presley's Jungle Room and Hugh Hefner's Chicago Playboy pool..."

which means that in the first half of the book I am chronicling the convergence of primitivism and modernism in the 20th Century, and how Tiki evolved from it (with SOME examples of Witco);
and (after thus providing the context for it) the second half of Tiki Modern showcases the history of Witco as a prime example of that phenomenon.

And of course there will be tri-lingual captions, and the German and French translations in the back, so that Taschen can keep the price down by getting American AND European distribution in one printing.

Hello Big Bro,
Spring or early summer, Lava Rock background or not Im still really excited about the book coming out. Will there be any events to coincide with the release? Will you be doing a book tour? And is there any Witco left at the former Chicago Playboy mansions pool?

1.) I certainly hope so

2.) That will all depend on my work schedule in Germany this summer

3.) As far as I know Playboy has left the building, so I doubt it. Witco was considered temporary, expendable decor.

An incredible year for Tiki tomes.

Tiki Road Trip and Tiki Modern. I don't know if my coffee table is big enough.

I've seen this book on Amazon for the last several weeks and have been tempted to pre-order it from them, but then I thought: Is this the best way for Sven? What is BigBro's preferred source we order from? Or put another way, which source pays the biggest commission to the author? Or, is Amazon good?

Perhaps we might be able to order signed copies from Sven, like you could with "Tiki Quest".

Hmmm....maybe, eventually, when I have my Kon-Id gallery website up, I actually should be selling it there, signed. But to make sure you get it asap, you should go Amazon. And thank you for thinking of me, but commission-wise I am getting some minute percent of Taschen" sales (better than the "zero" for the BOT!), so it is only quantity that adds up, not where obtained.
