TASCHEN celebrates Tiki Pop with Sven Kirsten


On the evening of August 3, TASCHEN Hollywood hosted Sven Kirsten as he signed copies of his latest release, Tiki Pop. Eager fans arrived early in anticipation of meeting the author and Tiki Sage. Once inside the Polynesian pavilion, guests enjoyed a cocktail served in its very own shrunken-head cup provided by Deadhead Rum. Sven signed copies of his book as The Glasgow Tiki Shakers entertained guests with their surf heavy sound.

Special thanks to Sven Kirsten, Deadhead Rum and the Glasgow Tiki Shakers for their generous contributions to the evening.


Selected Quotations from International Media

"In the middle of all this corn-fed wholesomeness (The Farmers Market) is a tiny island of sophistication: the TASCHEN store. Located directly under one of the Market's iconic clock towers, the smallish store offers a wide range of books from the TASCHEN catalogue, including books on films and filmmakers; large, unwieldy and expensive books on art and architecture; and, tucked off in one corner, some of the salacious sexy books that the company also puts out." — xfanz.com, United States
"An opium den of a bookstore, an irresistible emporium for all things excessive and escapist. TASCHEN’s selection appeals to the vicarious, the voracious, and the voyeuristic." — LA Weekly, Los Angeles, United States
