Phillip,are you still planning on releasing the eBook version of Waikiki Tiki with the additional material? I'm still hope to get a listen to an audio recording of Donn, and it appears you may have one of the few in existence.

Aloha,

Well, yes... Thanks for asking. I am still planning that phase of the project... while I continue to work on WTA,H,&P-II.

However,
Waikiki Tiki is STILL in print and I urge you to do so if you haven't read it yet. You'll not be disappointed. And, Bess Press has a nice discount on it ($17.21).

However,

Waikiki Tiki: Art, History, and Photographs ibook is now available as an ibook (looks great), but the bonus stuff like Donn's voice is not embedded yet.

I know I'm late to the game.... But I got this Book today and Love it. Could be my new favorite Tiki Book. Great Pics and written nicely. I'm looking forward to spending some serious time with it.

Aloha Erich,

Thanks for taking the time to post about Waikiki Tiki! High praise indeed! I think the book is aging well.

There is now a
Kindle version for $5.99 That's kinda neat!

best,

Phillip

Aloha,

With the news that the Treetops restaurant in Manoa Valley has reopened with the eventual goal of a Paradise Park Rebirth, I thought I'd dig into the archives and find a picture that was taken too late to make the Waikiki Tiki book...



Enjoy!
Hope the vintage Tiki's inside survived. They didn't shoot interiors in the video (but they are in the book.)

Aloha and Mahalo Hang10.

Sigh. Gone. I really does look like there will be a time in the future when EVERYTHING photographed in Waikiki Tiki: Art, History, and Photographs will be lost. Glad I was there to document the 80-90% that remained then that's already disappeared.

Thanks for your efforts, Phillip. I received your book for Christmas and it really is exceptional. It seems people don't appreciate the historic value of a place until 10-20 years after they've bulldozed it to put up a strip mall.
