My Amazon book is on the same shipment to Hawaii as yours, Kaiwaza. Bring yours to the next South Seas Cinema meeting so we can show it off. I felt guilty ordering mine from Amazon after reading this thread but then I realized that I don't know of any mom & pop new book retailers in Hawaii, only used books stores. The internet and the last Barnes & Noble is all we have nowadays. I can't wait to get my copy. The little excerpts I've read so far are spot on. Soon I will be able to read the rest.

I'm in the same boat, littlegiles, but for me I don't have TIKI MODERN, I was lucky to score a reasonably priced BOT online but I'm afraid those days are gone. Ah, the good and bad of being talented, correct and now popular Sven, but without you and other pioneers of tiki recognition in American a lot of us wouldn't have had clue about what was under our noses. Some of us had an idea but these books have energized and united us, at lest on the base understanding, of Tiki Style and man it's a great style to be a part of. Now if my wife could recognize it.

Mahalo nui Sven

Hey thanks, man! You will see and hopefully like how I brought in the whole Hollywood/South Seas movie genre into the story.

Having trouble uploading To Tiki Central probably due to the photograph size? I will try to share a few albums here from Tiki Pop startingwith Poly hai lecture with Sven Kirsten at the Purple Orchid last Sunday. https://www.facebook.com/ojaitimo/media_set?set=a.10203549747451659.1073741905.1453970922&type=1

Thanks for sharing, but unfortunately those of us who don't use Facebook can't see the pics.

Tiki Farm sent out this email on July 18th.

"NOW... if you can't make any of these events, DON'T WORRY! Starting sometime in early August, Tiki Farm will have the exclusive online combination of the signed book and the signed mug! Or, if you just want the mug, we will have unsigned mugs for you as well. Now we are only starting with a total of 50 signed sets, but if the demand is there, we will arrange to make more available for you."

It's huge! It's fantastic!

And I haven't even read it yet...just thumbed through the eye candy. Thanks Sven!

Thanks for all the comments, friends. When it gets there, and you have looked and read through it, please write a review on Amazon. The first one that popped up there is only 4 stars, and it is …kinda bland I must say. I don't understand what compels someone to post if that's all they have to say. I mean it is all nice, but after years of work on this project one hopes to get something more than a "product description" hailing the binding.

That's like seeing the Mona Lisa and saying you like the frame.

My book should be delivered later today, I'll try and get a review up in a day or so.

I'm surprised they have 5 used ones for sale up already that are more expensive than the 11 new ones.

If that surprises you, you haven't spent much time on the tiki scene.
