Aloha,

Hope it's going well for you! I'm still working on my seminar for the Hukilau. It's shaping up great!



This outtake from Waikiki Tiki is a Marcus Thorn Maori carving outside of one of the Hawaii collector shows a few years back.

Aloha!



This is one of those things where two people stick their heads in, and the third person takes a photo at the Waikiki Shopping Plaza

Aloha,

Have you gotten your copy of Waikiki Tiki yet? Feel free to review it on Amazon! I appreciate you considering buying my book!

Mahalo Nui Loa Tobor! I am enjoying going through my archives. There was just so much I could fit into 263 pages...

I've saved a bunch of really swell things for my seminar "A celebration of the Tiki Age in Hawaii" at The Hukilau, too. Plus I just picked up some swell slides that I'm busy digitizing for that event. I really wish I'd had some of these to use in Waikiki Tiki. Some really quite amazing amateur slides... more details soon...

SO wish that I could attend the Hukilau & hear all you have to tell... But I REALLY appreciate what you are offering in Waikiki Tiki; Art, History and Photographs.
Maybe someday I can take those that I love back (for me) to Waikiki. Until then, your book helps us fill the void.

Phil... excellent book! Congrats!

It has been inspirational to me as well as enjoyable!

I will not be able to attend your seminar as I will be vending, but could I get my book signed at another time during Hukilau?

Mahalo Nui Loa! Kind words! Of course Lake Surfer, I'd be happy to sign your book (or anyone else's book) anytime during the weekend!

Too bad you'll miss "A Celebration of the Tiki Age in Hawaii." It's gonna be swell with loads of previously unseen eye-candy and a super HUGE finale.

I will have my fountain pen, plenty of ink, and loads of time to enjoy the experience of the Hukilau. I want to meet people! It's planned that I will arrive from Hawaii sometime on Thursday and leave for Honolulu sometime on Sunday. (I'm still waiting for the details of my flights.)

I do suggest that people attending get a copy of Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs in advance (if they haven't already.) I will have a limited supply with me.

I'm hoping that the gift shop at the Mai Kai will order some from Bess Press so I can do a signing there. I'm probably hang out with my pals from The Waitiki 7 at their vending booth for a while too. I won't be hard to find. I also think Christie has suggested to the museum that they get some copies for sale.

We got ours at Kmart in Kailua-Kona last year. It is a great book. Note-the cover size is smaller than I imagined. For some reason I figured it was going to be about 8 by 11 inches. I was looking for that size book, and my wife found it in the small books! ZAZZ!

Aloha,

Thanks John-o !! I am so looking forward to the event... Glad you are coming and I'd be happy to do some drinking at the Mai-Kai...
I've only been there once before and it was a blast! Kern gave my party a behind the scenes tour that was wicked cool.

Hukilau is gonna be neat!
