Tiki News - Issue #6

I thought I'd start the new year with posting the full issue of Tiki News #6 (published January, 1996).

This was one of my favorite early issues because of the story about the Tiki/Polynesian dingbats around Los Angeles. Until I read this article, I didn't know those type of apartment complexes had their own architectural classification (e.g., dingbat).

You can click and then zoom on each page for easier reading.

Enjoy the zine!

I love Tiki Dingbat Apartments!

Did you notice the ad for Beachbum Berry's original Grog Log? This version was printed on 8 1/2" x 11" paper and stapeled together. They are very rare today.


  1. Where does the story continue after pg 15?

  2. The story reads down the left column of pg. 14 onto pg. 15 then back up to the right column on pg. 14.

  3. Mike. Thanks for posting and promoting this long sold-out issue of Tiki News. Lesley Marlene Siegel was the champion of Dingbat documentation which reached its public pinnacle with the awesome L.A. lifestyle movie Slums of Beverly Hills
