Synopsis

The Mighty Elvis is a commemoration of his life and

times in the form of an art book, told through the unique vision of legendary

designer and illustrator Seymour Chwast. Beautifully illustrated throughout, it

presents an enhanced portrait of one of America's greatest celebrities.





With text by author Steven Brower (Satchmo:

The Life and Art of Louis Armstrong), The Mighty Elvis reminds us of the

continuing stardom of one of the most popular American singers of all time.

Through Chwast's illustrations, cartoons and comics we get to relive his early

life, his meteoric rise to fame and how he was affected by, and in turn,

affected the world of music in the many genres he mastered. The book covers his

first appearances on television, Graceland, his meeting with President Nixon and

his wedding to Priscilla, and much more. Millions of fans loved him, purchased

his records, attended his sold out shows and went to his thirtythree films.

Death, forty years ago, has not diminished his fame. "Elvis Lives!" The Mighty

Elvis is a celebration, in art and design, of the life of a great icon of the

American Scene!
