===================================

TIKI POP I hope that it's OK I'm going to post a few photos here from the book. We love the book.
Talk about pounds of History. My scale goes between 5.5 and 6 pounds of Tiki goodness. Every page is covered with photos.
Sven has done it again, he's a master. He'll keep Tiki on everyone's radar. Thank you SVEN.


Off facebook today I borrowed this photo that shows the size.


I'm showing a tiny amount of photos that made my year if not more.

We love Gecko'z art and what a thrill to see he's holding one of my Bloody Maori heads that he had altered.


This is my own photo.


He's in the photo with kingstiedye aka Bullet.


Another page shows work by GROG and Bosko.


Another page shows Doug Horne, Derek Yanger, Tiki Art Shark and little lost tiki.


I'm so happy to fine one of Roge's Tiki Chunk Lamps. I did the sculpt for the tikis on the sides. That's an Eric October on the right.


The ultimate for me was the page with my Zombie's Torch mug.


I didn't show much of the book. The last image of my torch is on page 377.

Over and over I say a huge THANK YOU Sven. Love the book. (I'm such a ham.) Wendy

And there are STILL many more who I could not get in again! It was only on chapter on the revival, and there's only so much room.

I tried to get in folks that had not been in the previous two, like Crazy Al, Buzzy, Ken Ruzic, Doug Horne…

But still, I failed getting in Tiki Tony, Michael Uhlencott, Cass, Kirby…

It all will be taken care of in the "Big Book of the Tiki Revival"…. just wait another 7 years

I think the big miss was Benzart who spans both the semi old days and the revival times.
Still love the book.


Just got my copy of Tiki Pop today and it is GREAT!
On page 185 there is a table lamp “table lamp for unknown restaurant”
By Frank Brajevic collection.

This is the first table lamp for the Kahiki restaurant in Columbus Ohio
made by Bill Sapps wife in the basement of the Kahiki, they were oil lamps as told by
Herman Leitwien and would be filled with coconut scented oil when lit.

And on page 249 the “Quiet Village” sign was missing from the Kahiki, would love to find the story
on how it made it’s way to Hawaii?

Also Wendy you and the others should be proud of getting in this book as it is a winner.

He's in there. page 375 or something like that. You must have missed it because you couldn't look away from the drum picture on the same page
Buzzy Out!

My copy came today. It is a rare instance when something exceeds your expectations so greatly. I did not anticipate that TIKI POP would match (or surpass) the scope and high quality of Sven's previous books -- but it really does. It's an indispensable reference guide -- and the thing is HUGE and heavy, dwarfing BOT and TIKI MODERN.

And as much as there is in TIKI POP, at a first glance I came away both satisfied with the TON of info in the book and also hopeful that there is still room for Sven to mine even further (and that this is not the last book from Sven, after he catches his breath). After all, there's still more to dig out and document out there!

I must have missed it after a quick skim, AND gazing at your drum.
Your drum is very cool never saw that one.
Plus, good for Benzart! TC was gittin to the point where they did not remember the old skool,
And Benzart is the real deal old skool.

Dam was that light even from Kahiki?

Sven!

MAhalos for having Mrs Boo and I at the Egyptian yesterday. Wow, this book is HUGE!!!

As per the Eli Hedley part, one of these days we'll get it right

Name- Correct Spelling wooo hooo!!!!

"Real Beachcomber" - You get off for forewarning me Eli Hedley was the "Original Beachcomber" named by the Wall Street Journal.

Paradise Cove- Incorrect. Paradise Cove is in Malibu. The driftwood beach house was in White Point/Royal Palms, end of Western Ave. San Pedro, Ca. Family nickname... The Cove"

1 out of 3 is not bad!! Baby steps. Next one we'll nail it!!

Aloha! Bamboo Ben

p.s. This is a running joke between Sven and I. The editors/fact checkers mess with us everytime!
