Congratulations Sven on both the book AND the Exhibition!
Your tireless efforts and love of Tiki have brought us all
more wonderful goodies to explore and delight in!
Bravo! what an accomplishment
and what a surprise to see "the Song of the pufferfish" not only in the exhibit
but also in the book!
made my mommy proud!

mahalo x 100!

Back from Paris- here are a couple of pictures I've taken showing the new book.
I need a bigger bookshelf!

The Collector's Weekly site has an interview with me that encompasses the scope of the exhibit and book well, with lots of eye candy:

http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/tiki-hangover/

Although the title can be seen as somewhat derogatory, and the first two pics are NOT from the book, the rest of the images are all from its pages. The interview is well edited and fact-checked, and almost complete in the way I gave it.

Although the site's TIKI MUG article is marred by misguided attempts of political correctness and contains some mis-information (despite much being copied from the Book of Tiki), Collector's Weekly has some really cool articles, like about this amazing place that I had never heard about:

http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/collectors-on-a-mission/

Much time can be wasted on this site!

Collectors Weekly has been one of my favorite websites for a while. Some of the articles can be lengthy, but they're fun to read. They also have a Facebook page.

The CW article was well done, I thought. The mugs article had lots of info on tiki, little info on mugs. Seems like a fun website, though! Thanks for sharing.
