I am cramming in as much as I can, because a week after Oasis I have to re-enter the Foreign TV Legion in deepest Bavaria and will be a goner- until December!

I took off months for the book and the exhibit earlier this year, and soon will need to make mortgage money, pronto.

And Trav, lenders of more than one item get a Thank You copy sent by Taschen - straight from the warehouse.
So unfortunately those come without signature/dedication.

Sven, what's the cost of a book bought at the signings?

It will be the regular over-the-counter book store price: $59.99

Here's some more eye candy from the book:

My copy won't be blessed with an autograph, but Amazon is prepping for shipment and I should have it by this weekend. Just in time for my birthday On Sunday.

Most awesome self-gift ever!! Now I need to find an affordable Book of Tiki to go with.

A number of "used" Book of Tiki copies have come on the market in the last couple of years. They're still priced between $95 and $200. But that's better than nothing. Let Google or Amazon point you in the right direction.

We'll have to ask Sven if he plans to re-print some of his earlier books. I waited several years before I finally was able to buy a reprint of Grog Log from Jeff's publisher.

I was notified by Amazon that my copy shipped today. Thanks to Optimus, I mean Amazon Prime, I should have it in my hot little hands by Wednesday. I'll be sure to start a new thread about it as soon as I get it!
