Could someone please clarify whether Sven's book Tiki Pop will be all "new" vintage material, not seen in either Book of Tiki or Tiki Modern? Thanks!

Well there's this quote from the book description online:

Quote:

Featuring a large selection of previously unpublished images, the tome documents Tiki culture as a Western cultural phenomenon, juxtaposing movie posters against comic strips and Robinson Crusoe illustrations.

Can't wait to see the new book and do some time tripping back to tiki's glory days.

Unfortunately, the book did not make it to the publisher in time to be available at the museum exhibition (at least not at the beginning).

This is going to be one epic Tiki tomb!

I'm getting two!

Is there any benefit to pre-ordering? If not, I'll just wait until it's released.

Hi, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the benefit of pre-ordering is that Amazon has special pre-order pricing, and a guarantee that if the price drops you get it for that price.
Right now I see this:

Pre-Order: $44.98
List Price: $59.99
Save: $15.01 (25%)

I'm surprised Sven hasn't popped in to comment. I'd love to see a few sample spreads from the book!
