Here is the official announcement:



BIGGER than the Book of Tiki! (...and ten dollars more, too )
SEVEN HUNDRED never before seen images! (that's 100 more than the Book of Tiki!...well, about 5 of them actually were in the BOT).
CLOTH cover! The NEW TESTAMENT of Tiki!
Completely NEW ridiculous theories about the meaning of Tiki culture that nobody else would have conjured up!



The MARTINI KINGS will provide their exotic vibes, and TRADER VIC'S is on board, though at press time it was still unclear if a catering license (for liquor!) was in place. If not, you will just have to get intoxicated by the horn of plenty of rare eye candy in my book, and selected WITCO pieces that will be on display It's OK to just get a book and get the hell outta there, too,

P.S.: Parking in the Farmer's Market lot will be easiest, the store is in the clock tower between the parking lot and the GROVE pedestrian zone. If the lot is full, you may choose to park in the Grove garage, BUT, please be advised that the Taschen store cannot validate for the Grove parking, only for the Farmer's Market lot.

AAAAAAAAAH! Good news, Trader Vic's can do alcohol! And they will provide one of the Chinese mixologists! Now don't start requesting by name, that's asking too much! And don't show up too early, while we're still setting up, just to squirrel some free hooch, that's impolite!

There is another problem. TIKI MODERN is a whopper. To look at it is a two-handed affair. You can't hold your Mai Tai AND look at it at the same time! Dilemma. Solution: Bring your wife, she can alternate holding the book or holding the glass for you. Or even better, she can hold the book open and flip the pages so you can view it WHILE you sip your Mai Tai!

This only works though if your wife is not a Tikiphile, and does not like Mai Tais, or SHE will look at the book, or drink the Mai Tai.

On the other hand, if you decide to just fore-go the book offer, so you have your hands free to drink, I totally sympathize with that.

OK, I had to bump this up to the top now so it can compete with THE OTHER TWO posts about the event. Notice that I, in my usual humble manner, did not use my own name in the announcement. But it is ME. The author. I wrote this. The thread above. Because I can and I wanted to.... I better stop now.

So y'all can spend some more money (and I can make some), I am bringing twenty TIKI MODERN European Book Tour posters to sell. For 40 bucks, in cash, to me (not the store), you can own one of these beautiful rich prints on thick art paper, signed and numbered by Dr. Alderete:






The whole shipment (50 of 200) got bumped a little on the upper right corner, so there is a slight crease there, but that'll smoothe out in framing or hanging.

For the discriminating collector who is unable to drop in tomorrow I listed one on e-bay:
