In time for the 25th anniversary of his death, the king of rock is memorialized in Elvis: A Celebration, a photo book featuring over 600 images of Presley throughout his life. Compiled by author and book editor Mike Evans (The Art of the Beatles), the volume shows Elvis as a seventh-grader in Tupelo, Miss.; being inducted into the army; crying with his father over the death of his mother; signing autographs on the Paramount Studio lot; performing in his white fringed jumpsuits and romping with Priscilla and Lisa Marie. The book includes candids, movie stills and studio shots, all identified with detailed captions that together provide a thumbnail history of Presley’s career.
