Released by Elvis Unlimited is the follow up to their release �All Elvis�. Volume 2 features a new collection of rare and unpublished pictures of the King according to the subtitle, does it?

The second volume has the same design as volume one. A glossy cover with an attractive Elvis, unfortunately out of focus. The book is full colour, including the background for the pictures. 50 percent of the pictures is black and white though.

Released at the end of 2005 is the coffee table book �The King� by Jim Piazza. And if we say coffee table book we mean coffee table (book)!his publication was presented as a coffee table book.

Looking at the giant size, 15"�17", this book is a coffee table in its own right by adding just four legs. When you open your coffee table you find a modern looking book on glossy paper.  Read More

This book is made by one (graphic) artist about one (musical and movie) artist. Is one plus one three?

The book is a real glossy book on real glossy items (Elvis' belongings). A hardcover book with a well designed modern look showing �old stuff� (pre-1977). The foreword is written by renowned art historian, E.A. Carmean, Jr. It is a big book. Jeff Scott is known for his dramatic imagery of America�s historic and cultural landscape and his work is in the permanent collections of the Dallas Museum of Art.  Read More

Beforehand � knowing our "love" for impersonators � this book didn�t make our hearts beat faster. But as always, we give anything a chance, we decided to do our work and review this comic novel about an impersonator, written by Rich Koslowski (ISBN 1-891830-61-1).

Well, it was harder than we thought. In over one month one of our reviewers � the one that hardly reads anything else than comics � wasn�t able to beat more than 18 pages.   Read More

How to review this audio book by Chris Hutchins, a former journalist and tour manager who was there when it happened. It is published as a book, but comes as a 3 CD set.

The 3 CD set comes in a cardboard sleeve with three slim line CD-cases. The cover contains pictures of both Elvis and the Beatles, but none of the famous meeting.    Read More

2001 Fact Odyssey - The Early Years (Jim Curtin / Renata Ginter)

In1999 this book was released, as the first of a series. In the introduction the author states that �You will not find another compilation of Elvis facts that is more accurate, in-depth, or interesting than this book�. Let�s find out if that�s true. But first a small word on the design. The book is delivered on good paper, and in a very clean print. As you can see the cover is plain, with a classic picture, very tasteful.   Read More

The King and I - Bernard Lansky

'He always called me Mister Lansky'. The unmistakable Southern accent echoes through the clothing store in the lobby of the regal Peabody Hotel at 149 Union Avenue, Memphis. 'I told him, 'Call me Bernard.' But Elvis always said, 'Thank you, Mister Lansky'. He was brought up right. His mother brought him up a gentleman'.

The Ultimate ELVIS IN MUNICH Book" is a fascinating narrative and visual exploration of the time Elvis spent in the German city.

Andreas Roth has done a superb job in his research for "The Ultimate ELVIS IN MUNICH Book". Following up on many leads, Andreas has uncovered numerous little known aspects of Elvis' visit to the German city.

While most fans will be familiar with Elvis' well chronicled visits to the Moulin Rouge, how many of us were aware of his visit to the Eve Bar on Karolinenplatz, just a few steps away from the "Amerika-Haus"? Not only does Andreas Roth give us illuminating text on this visit but he has sourced a sublime collection of photos from the evening.  Read More

Here is the cover of the book "Life Lessons from Elvis: If Sequin Jumpsuits Are Wrong Then I Don't Want To Be Right" by Anthony Rubino's. This will be a 160 pages "humor" book was released as a hardback by Routledge Hill Press in mid June 2006. (ISBN: 1401602487).
Life lessons sometimes come from unlikely sources. Take Michael Jackson, for example. If ever there were a reason to avoid plastic surgery, one need look no further. Or Paris Hilton, Tommy Lee and Scott Stapp, who reminded us that making a video of yourself having sex is a bad, bad, bad idea.  Read More

There has been a substantial tide of publications about Presley based on primary sources. Presley's words and actions have been meticulously documented. His associates have been massively interviewed. It is high time for more synthesis of primary sources combined with critical thought and analysis. de Leon does just this, providing a timely interpretive biography synthesising a range of secondary sources, mainly books. I have to say that, although Guralnick's books are outstanding reference materials, they are so thorough that it is sometimes hard to "see the wood for the trees". Books that summarise, highlight and discuss the significance of certain events have a valued place on any bookshelf.  Read More

Set for release on October 28, 2006 is a 96 pages book by John Black und J. D. Black entitled "Black Velvet Elvis" (ISBN: 0889842779).

Synopsis from the publisher:

"In this brilliant and unusual first book of poems, J. D. Black salutes The King not only with the occasional electric guitar but with stranger and more delicate melodies as well, a few strummed out on the dulcimer, others twanged along the nerves. Black reveals himself as a master of difficult forms extending from rondeaux and villanelles to mischievous haiku. But it would be mistaken to see him merely as a skilled traditionalist.  Read More

Elvis At 21: New York To MemphisElvis at 21: New York to Memphis featuring Alfred Wertheimer's seminal Elvis photos from 1956 will be released during October, 2006.
For a peek inside the book- click here.In 1956, a twenty-one-year-old Elvis Presley was at the beginning of his remarkable and unparalleled career and photographer Alfred Wertheimer was asked by Presley�s new label, RCA Victor, to photograph the rising star. With unimpeded access to the young performer, Wertheimer was able to capture the unguarded and everyday moments in Elvis' life during that crucial year, a year that took him from Tupelo, Mississippi to the silver screen, and to the verge of international stardom and his crowning as "The King of Rock 'n' Roll.� As Alfred Wertheimer photographed Elvis during 1956, and again in 1958, he created classic images that are spontaneous, unrehearsed and completely without artifice.
