So if Book of Tiki was the Bible of Tiki that makes this the New Testament?

You know I'm getting this one, kinda want to get two for when this goes out of print and the price
goes up to lord knows how high.

Thanx for giving us more eye candy Sven!
And congratz!

It will have to be my bible because I can't find affordable copies of the other two.

Beginnings[edit]
The beginnings of the Good News Tiki Bible can be traced to requests made by people in the Tiki community for a version of The book of Tiki that Had more Tiki from days gone by AND newer Tiki.
people in the Tiki community envisioned a new style of The book of Tiki called Tiki Pop, and would be expressed in a translation "thought for thought" rather than "picture for picture". The dynamic theory was inspired by tiki nuts craving for more tiki. The Tiki Society, impressed with Svens first and second books decided to buy them. Due to these requests Tiki Pop was born.
Today's English Version, was released in 2014 as a 400 page publication It received a mass marketing effort Via Tiki Central and by other means.

Maybe once the new one comes out the old one will become more affordable?

We haven't asked Sven about this, but the overall edition size has a huge impact on market prices once the first edition goes out of print. There is a higher demand globally for Sven's works now, so it would be reasonable that if he only printed 5,000 "Book of Tiki" in the past that he might print 15,000 "Tiki Pop" today. And if "Tiki Pop" is the definitive catalog for the Paris exhibition, that might require a minimum printing of at least 15,000 copies for those who visit the exhibition and choose to buy the catalog. So there could be quite a number of copies of "Tiki Pop" available globally in the future. That could make "Tiki Pop" stand nicely alongside "Book of Tiki" and with a significantly more affordable price tag in the future.

But then there is also the potential for Sven and Taschen to authorize a second printing of Book of Tiki, Tiki Modern, etc. which would also have an impact on those book prices.

It's gonna be fun reading this thread in 10 years or so to look back and see how things actually turned out.

There are more sample images from 'Tiki Pop' - 18 of them - on the Taschen website.

Remember that Sven published a "tiki music" CD too.

Sven is one of the world's "ambassadors of tiki" with his collected works and his public appearances.
