The Sound of Tiki!

A little while ago I designed a series of paper images for a brand new CD release  of unusual and never-before-published Exotica recordings.  Sven Kirsten's "The Sound of Tiki" is the long awaited audio companion to his epic "Book of Tiki" published by Taschen.  

Photographing the cover image

"The Sound of Tiki" is a 44-minute musical cocktail for the ears, and a 52-page full color book of informative candy for the eyes.  
I'm happy to say the everything turned out beautifully!

Preview on YouTube:

Or get Sven to sign your CD in person on Thursday April 29

Paula, Rule #1: Wear grubbies if your hands are gonna be dripping with glue!

That cover looks awesome and I enjoyed the other images as well in the preview. A real hip (or is it hep) package!

Great post!!
I have been following your blog for a while now and I love everything you create.
I'm not sure if there is a way to email you on here but I wanted to share these Disneyland 1961 teacups I just purchased.I think you would really like them! I'm going to post it on my blog so if you want to look you can visit at

Thanks! Maybe you will recognize them and will be able to give me more information on them since the woman I purchased them from didn't seem to know much...
