Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tiki: ein Begriff der gleichermaßen für einsame Inseln wie auch für den amerikanischen Traum steht. So entstand in Amerika der Nachkriegszeit eine leidenschaftliche Schwärmerei für weisse Sandstrände, exotische Früchte und halbnackte Einheimische, die in wilden Orgien die Nacht zum Tage machten. Solche Südsee-Fantasien setzten sich in den Köpfen der Menschen fest und wirkten sich nachhaltig auf Mode, Musik, Film Esskultur, Werbung und Architektur im Amerika der 50er Jahre aus.

Synopsis:

This enlightening and hilarious guide casts the reader as an ""urban archaeologist,"" exploring the lost remnants of the Tiki culture across the United States and discovering relics from this forgotten civilization in thrift stores, yard sales, and used book and record emporia. A combination of nostalgia and fascinating pop-cultural study, this book delves head first into the fabulously tacky yesteryear world of Tiki.
