LONO IS BACK (in stock)

Due to it's popularity, The Curse of Lono has been out of stock for some time whilst waiting to be reprinted. Now, Lono is back but for how long, no one knows. This book is most certainly a best seller and if you wish to get your hands on it, I would recommend hanging about.

The Curse of Lono
is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: the crazy tales of a journalist's "coverage" of a news event that ends up being a wild ride to the dark side of Americana. Originally published in 1983, Curse features all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadman duo became known and loved. This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunter's oeuvre, was long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy. TASCHEN's signed, limited edition sold out before the book even hit the stores, but this unlimited version makes the title accessible to everyone.
