Thanks for the link ikitnrev. I see on these sample pages Sven hit on some key points of Tiki and it's history that I am also very interested in (as if I expected anything less from him). I was going to wait but now after seeing the page samples I can't wait so I just pre-ordered!!!

Remember that Sven published a "tiki music" CD too.

Sven is one of the world's "ambassadors of tiki" with his collected works and his public appearances.



yes of course, when ever I DJ a tiki event I make sure that cd is there and played.
and I arranged for a cd release party at Don the Beachcober in So Cal when it came out.

I've just been informed that The Tiki POP book will be available at the museum for the opening of the exhibition. Hurrah!

Now THAT'S an honor! Nice job, Wendy!

Sven: Is Amazon the best place to order the book? Is your cut bigger if I order elsewhere? Will it ship faster from elsewhere? I'm not lucky enough to be able to come to a signing.

I'll echo that...I'm not anti-Amazon, but I like to support the tiki community if there's a way to give them a bigger cut of my $$.

Third that. I would hold out to purchase it in person if it will be available in Southern California anytime soon? If not, I would like to know the "preferred" method of purchase so that more of the $$$ can go to the author.

Yeah…sure. I don't like to recommend Amazon because it is such a price-breaker that it is hurting bookstores, but if you can't get it any other way. And don't worry, I am not making a cent on the book anywhere, it is all for the love and glory of Tiki.

"There will be several book signings in LA at the end of July, and at Tiki Oasis, to be announced in time".
Looking forward to your book signings in LA at the end of July Sven.

Not to make people jealous, more to spread the good news - I was preordered a book & received it today!

With the dust jacket removed:


The foreword:



A random double page:


The pages have a good feel to them.

I hope this encourages those who are waiting for their books!
