Just received my copy of Arts Of The South Seas in the mail today! Cost me 15 clams, and it's worth every one! Incredible pieces in this book

Great thread Jon Paul, if anyone is interested in the real stuff there is a great exhibition at the Musee du quai branly in Paris, We went a couple of weeks ago and it is amazing what they have there(I hope you went on your recent trip Sven?)If anyone is in Europe well worth a visit to what real Tiki is all about,Not to mention the shrunken heads!Here are a couple of pics of about 40 i took There are also a lot of books available in the gift shop but mostly in French but still great images

Thanks for the contributions.
I just picked up the Ben Hunt books.
I need to carve an outrigger, and that's going to be a huge help.

Just got this book in the mail.
On Pg 15 is this carving.
At the last Kahiki sale I bought this carving.
Not the same one, but it does have more of a old look feel to it.
Makes me wonder who made this copy.
Was told by Bill Sapp that a lot of the Kahiki decor came from Mexico.

Ok, Great Thread you all.
I am however stuck with a question as I am looking at pulling the trigger on the Adrienne Lois Kaeppler edition of Oceanic Art, And the question is: How many of these books are filled with many of the same photographs?
I other words, after I spend $100.00 on this book, how necessary would a copy of say, Anthony P Meyer's edition of Oceanic Art be?
Although I probably wind up with the Hewicker and Tischner edition eventually because it's a classic, and others, I have limited room for my library at the moment and I want something I can pour over and over for carving inspiration.
Just trying to get the most bang for my buck on this one.
