...plus the Aku Aku typeface is from the Las Vegas original one, and the "Romance of Rum" is from another menu, too...I think a Crane Kon Tiki menu. The Ku looks like the often copied Coco Joe's/Brady Bunch tourist piece.

All this is part of the Polynesian pop "Chain of Transmission".




actually, the tiki is identical to the cocojoes tiki bookends tiki, minus the sculpted grass wall background with bamboo frame which makes up the rest of the bookend....they probably took a photo of the bookend then traced the tiki and base in pencil..adding the detail in for the final printing.
