Perhaps beyond tiki, but House Industries (http://www.houseind.com) is coming out with a SHAG fontkit soon. I know Shag used to use a lot of AdLib, the Psychatronic font, the House Tiki fonts, and the FontDiner Swinger font, so it'll be fun to see what his own fonts look like. Maybe Shag-similes (people who copy Shag, aka Shag-ulators, Shag-offs) will have an easier time forging a better looking version of his signature on their images.

Anyone seen House's Neutra type and the Neutra boomerang chair too? Neato bandito! In my book, House is probably the number one company for hitting the cross section of things I already happen to like. Probably many of you know this, but House did a Tiki font set, and they also had Otto from Tiki News write a beautiful article about mugs for their magazine a few years ago.

(I'm not a shill, really)

The House guys really love what they do. You can tell by the quality of every font collection they create.

I'm always reinspired when I get their catalog in the mail.

No shill here either, just a fan!
