The Tiki Bible (The Book of Tiki)

Sven Kirsten's The Book of Tiki is probably one of the most authoritative books on American Tiki culture in print.

He approaches the lost generation of Tiki enthusiasts like an anthropologist would, and in so doing, re-introduces all who read his masterpiece to that magic that has captivated those who went before us.

I bought the book years ago and found much inspiration, and it sits in my writing studio, prominently, today.

There are dozens of books on Tiki, but this one, the Bible of all Tiki books, must be included in any collector's Tiki Bar, grass shack, or within reach of the hammock.
