Great coverage of all those food stalls & those very underage strippers Chris!
The band is pretty great too, love the theme from "Our Man Flint"

Reminds me I need to get to the "Gumbo Pot" soon!

Another triumph, I give you credit for keeping some of the great pictures that we have never seen off Tiki Central so we’d all be surprised, it must have taken some restraint. My only issue is I wish there were more text and history with some chapters being a few scant paragraphs long but that might be more on the editor, and right now Tiki Farm has the companion mug for sale, get it while you can.

Me too, me too…but alas, I had to give half of the text up for the damn French, because the book was conceived as the catalog for the Tiki Pop exhibition. Mind you, if the damn French wouldn't have mounted the exhibition - the damn book would not exist!

And to tell the whole story of Pre-Tiki and Tiki Pop from its earliest beginnings to its end (and its revival) in one volume, something had to give. As a visual storyteller, the images are holy to me, and tell the tale first, the text is secondary to them.

Sven, it is indeed a very good book. I do, however, wish the pages came laminated with some sort of coating - my drool is starting to cause the pages to curl!

Thank you for including so much history and referencing of the tribal art that influenced the creation of tiki pop.
I was happy to see a picture of the handmade Kahiki ashtray in use at the restaurant. I have one and I don't think I had ever seen a picture of it at the restaurant.

As a Neo Tiki Phile I am thankful for all of this pavement and virtually no rough road and path... Any and all info can be thumbed through great books or at a click of a mouse. It is truly a wonder, and blessing.

Thanks!

Aloha,

Tiki Pop: I think it's a wonderful book for the novice and experienced Tiki enthusiast. I especially enjoyed the greater focus on Pre-Tiki Hawaii and the role Hollywood played i creating the faux-paradise that followed in America. The size is wonderful, and the pictures really leap out of the pages. Layout, modern content, and historical background merge into an intoxicating melange of exciting storytelling. Very nice Sven.

best,

Phillip

Sven,

It is without a doubt a great book. . . my only complaint? Physically, its almost too large. It fell over the other night and almost crushed my 15 year old daughter. .. Poor girl, now she is a gimp!

Oh thank god! I couldn't live with myself if anything would have happened!

I agree, it is impractical in its hugeness - yet it is very satisfying to see the images that large. And the goal of topping the previous two books has been achieved.

Can we expect a limited edition wheelbarrow from Tiki Farm to accompany your next book?

Because that would look great on my porch.

I love this book! It's grand and glorious and compliments The Book of Tiki and Tiki Modern with yet more layers and depth forging a bigger picture in my mind. Heartfelt thanks!

Trying my best to Tikify my niece and her husband in Omaha, Nebraska. Previously sent her Tiki Modern for Xmas and just sent her Tiki Pop for her birthday. I have a copy of The Book of Tiki to send her for Xmas...plus had sent her a few mugs. I explained the importance of holding onto the trifecta of Tiki books...she is a work in progress, but she knows what Tiki is...thanks to Sven!!!
