Just got home from 2 weeks on O'ahu and found Waikiki Tiki right away. What a great book full of some great history. Everyone that loves
This poly pop craze has to get this book.
Thanks! I'm glad you like the book and (I hoped most people would have it by now, but realize many don't. Bess Press has plenty at the best price and I have a few left, btw) had a good vacation. Did you get the 1st or 2nd printing? The second has this shot...
and a few others of the International Market Place (including a Brownlee original hiding in plain sight) toward the rear of the book. (I had to replace a photograph or two for reasons I won't go into in detail here.) I'm actually glad those got in because I'd missed them before. (The story is in the official thread...)
I tried to save the Market as best I could. Not enough people cared to sign the petition and kick up a fuss I guess. At least I got to take the pictures and save the memories for the future. I'll do a last walk-through to see what's left December 7th before my wedding the next day.
Waikiki Tiki; Art, History, and Photographs.
Available now from Bess Press Hawaii.
