The Tiki News Book? There was an idea floating around a while back that the early issues would be compiled. Is that on ice or did it hit an iceberg?

Taboo- The Art of Tiki 2? I heard this was on it's way over a year ago, but nothing has cropped up. The number of Tiki inspired artists has exploded and the first book was already a sell-out. Time for another, surely?

How often does Tki News put out issues these days. Are they quarter-annual? I'm afraid to send in my $12 for a subscription and not receive anything.

It was three times a year, and it was never a regular schedule- pretty much when Otto had enough to fill it, it came out. But with V3 in the picture, I wouldn't count on one anytime soon.

Manic Cat, and others...Do not be scared by
sending in money to Tiki News for a subscription. The magazine does come out
erratically, but you will get all the issues
you are due. Tiki News is well worth it! I even recommend buying all the back issues Otto still has "in stock" to sell. This is one information packed magazine!!!! I always renew my subscription so I don't miss a single issue.
PS-No, I don't work for Tiki News, I just love it!

8/16/2010 UPDATE- According to the Tiki New website, all back issues are SOLD OUT!

For what $12 buys these days, I'd think that even if I never got an issue for my money (which I haven't yet) it's well worth the donation at the very least.

As stated above, I'm sure we'll get our issues, but here is someone with a real love for tiki who is doing something to keep it alive.

(Everyday I run out to the mail box, with anticipation dripping, hoping to find my issue of Tiki News; I haven't ran to the mail box like this since '68 when I saved up 30 boxtops from Honeycomb cereal in order to get my Green Hornet ring! Mister Postman, whoa, whoa Mister Postman ...)

And the issues just keep getting fatter and more info packed! The last issue was humungous!!

I'm convinced--The pen is on the checkbook as we speak.
Thanks!

I was thinking that I have not seen any new Issues of Tiki News since Issue # 17 with the cool Shag art work on the front. Was that the last one or have I been missing out on other issues that are not listed on the Tiki News Web site? I do't want to be missing any of those issues! I love that little magazine.

So? What happened with that book (project)?

I think Otto took care of that Tiki culture facet with his series of "Tiki Art Now" books/ exhibition catalogs.
Not that there is always room for another Tiki Art only book... :)
