James Teitelbaum, author of the highly-praised Tiki Road Trip, has just released his latest book: Big Stone Head: Easter Island and Pop Culture. Illustrated with almost 350 images of Rapa Nui, of pop culture artifacts inspired by the island’s mysterious moai figures, and an art gallery of contemporary interpretations of the moai, Big Stone Head: Easter Island and Pop Culture is a lively, fun, colorful, and educational peek at how millennia-old rock art on the world’s most remote inhabited island inspired cartoons, action figures, and bar decor.
As a nod to the deforestation disaster that eventually befell the island of Rapa Nui, the book is being released for download in PDF format. For gifting, the PDF is also available on a bamboo USB drive on an accompanying gift card. For the ultimate experience, it can also be purchased with a limited edition tiki mug, designed by Doug Horne and manufactured by Tiki Farm.
