That's great news, Phil, Congrats! That's where it belongs. Wonder if I will ever see the day when there will be a Polynesian pop exhibition there...

Now that's some good news, can't wait to see it! Midcentury poly-pop from Waikiki is kind of a gap in the documented world of tiki, and it looks like this book will fill that gap nicely!

Mahalo Randy. There is plenty of archival stuff and modern eyecandy contained in the 264 pages between the hard cover. I am really happy with the way the book turned out. Pre-orders have begun not only on my book, but some other titles the Tikicentralites might enjoy. "The Arts and Crafts of Micronesia" and the "Petroglyphs from Hawaii" are pretty rad (I seen them), and I want to read the Rell Sunn book.

Two people from Australlia were the first to order "Waikiki Tiki," based on the Bess Press Catalog released earlier this year, before it was even sent to the printer. Identify yourselves please.


Me next to Edward M. Brownlee's Canlis Comission.

Is this Tiki on public land?
If so, where?

Aloha,

First off Mahalo, Sven. I too would like to see that exhibit at the Bishop. They must have incredible things stored away. Perhaps we are one day closer today!

Thank you for your question Chris. However, I am HONOR BOUND not reveal the location or the owners of Edward M. Brownlee's 1st commission for Canlis, aka the "Lono" carving.

As important as that carving is to the Tiki world, take solace in knowing it is being preserved for future generations and in good hands who know what it is. One of the conditions of being granted access to the owners fabulous and vast collection (and it took quite a while, once I'd tracked the artifact down...) is that they asked me not to, and that is enough for me.

I'm glad you enjoy my book.

Phillip

I trembled, while first touching the master carvers work.

Mahalo Nui Loa!



Royal Grove Hotel lobby. The lobby is full of Tiki and other items given to the owners by visitors to the hotel.

Thanks Slacks! I'm sure you will enjoy my book!

Just returned from two months in London to find this fantastic book waiting for me. Congratulations, Phillip, this is truly a labor of love. Packed full with hundreds of glorious full-color images and photos of tikis in and around Waikiki, the book is pure eye-candy for tikiphiles everywhere. Mixing fascinating glimpses of Honolulu's lost cultural past with his own cool photos of tiki's continuing presence on O'ahu, Phillip has created an important work that documents Tiki's past and present in its original home. A wonderful addition to the Tiki/Polynesian Pop genre of books and a great Christmas present for anyone into Tiki or Hawaiiana.....
