April 29 - Elvis On Television

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Elvis’ first appearance on national television, Boxcar Enterprises will release a Limited Edition 400-page hard cover book (with slipcase), a comprehensive illustration of Elvis Presley’s early television appearances titled "Elvis on Television (1956-1960)". The Book is expected to be released June 20th 2016.

From the press-release:
From his first national introduction on the Dorsey Brothers ‘Stage Show’ in January 1956, through his appearances on other TV shows hosted by famous celebrities such as Milton Berle, Steve Allen and Ed Sullivan (including the infamous ‘from the waist up’ show in January 1957), this book goes well behind the scenes of each show documenting his arrival, the rehearsals and the shows themselves, all the way through to Elvis’ post-army appearance on The Frank Sinatra-Timex Show in May 1960. It was to be his last television appearance for eight years. 

Supported by a fully comprehensive text, (by Gordon Minto) collected here are scores of historical documents, memorabilia and hundreds of rare photographs - many of which have never before been published. This book will captivate the reader throughout, and is the most detailed document on the history of Elvis on Television from 1956-60.

Blue Suede Shoes: The Culture of Elvis 

Due from Thom Gilbert is the book "Blue Suede Shoes: The Culture of Elvis".

Description:

An all-access pass to the private world of Elvis Presley, as photographed by Thom Gilbert, who went behind the scenes to capture these stunning photographs of Elvis artifacts. An intimate look at the “The King” through an examination of the items he chose to surround himself with, this collection presents portraits, personal memorabilia, jewelry, fashion and knickknacks, and interior images from his homes and birthplace. 


Adding to this unique portrait of Elvis are inspirational stories from the musicians, intimates, relatives, producers, songwriters, costars and friends who knew him. Gilbert has created an historic collection that encompasses an in-depth cross-section of the people who crossed paths with one of America’s most beloved performers and the possessions and treasures that were meaningful to the man who was the most celebrated pop culture icon of the 20th century.
