Now that's some good news, can't wait to see it! Midcentury poly-pop from Waikiki is kind of a gap in the documented world of tiki, and it looks like this book will fill that gap nicely!

Mahalo Randy. There is plenty of archival stuff and modern eyecandy contained in the 264 pages between the hard cover. I am really happy with the way the book turned out.
Pre-orders have begun not only on my book, but some other titles the Tikicentralites might enjoy. "The Arts and Crafts of Micronesia" and the "Petroglyphs from Hawaii" are pretty rad (I seen them), and I want to read the Rell Sunn book.

Two people from Australlia were the first to order "Waikiki Tiki," based on the Bess Press Catalog released earlier this year, before it was even sent to the printer. Identify yourselves please.


Me next to Edward M. Brownlee's Canlis Comission.

Aloha,

Chris, You saw a very rough and early version when you came here over 5-7 years ago.

Zeta, I will ask the fine people at Bess Press about posting a few more pages. They are in control of the project and I will do as they ask. October 1st will come soon enough. I do not see any problem with posting a few out takes though!


Poolside. This shot of a tattoo artist and his daughter happened too late to be included.

Tikiyaki, Mahalo.

Hi Phillip, I'm a little confused about this picture you have in your book (the b&w one, lower center):



Maybe you can clear up my confusion, but isn't that picture from the Mai-Kai's calendar archives?



I believe that's actually Mireille Thornton. What is the connection with Waikiki Tiki? Thanks.

Good information and sharp eyes, Gatorrob. (Seems that her head is in a little different position, so it's probably from the same photo session.) Thank You Very Much. I got that tattered black & white photo from Gecko (who bought it at 'Da Collector's Show' in 2003-2004) many years ago...There was no information to go along with the photo at the time.

I thought the photo made a nice counterpart to the tattooed tourist ankle. I will make sure that the correction to the caption is made in any future editions of "Waikiki Tiki." (Too late for this one though.)

Aloha,



Tourist at the International Market Place about 1962. Sign reads "Don the Beachcomber proudly presents Johnny Spenser and the Kona Coasters appearing in the Bora Bora Lounge."

This outtake didn't make the book because I actually found something better for that page right before the deadline.

I've have some really nice comments! Mahalo

Aloha,

I saw the proofs before they were sent off to the printer last week and they are wicked awesome! Bess Press said they will post some more pages as we get closer to the release date. I'd forgotten about this photo of a local carver's work. I meant to include it in "Waikiki Tiki." I haven't seen him in a while or any new work from him. I wonder where he is?

Hey Phil, what happened to the Hawaiian Hut at the Moana?
Is it still closed? Detikified? Renovated?
Do tell!
