The 64 page hardcover book “Elvis the King: The Authorized Book from the Graceland Archives” by Gillian G. is due on May 8, 2014 from Carlton Books Ltd. 

Elvis passed away in 1977 but his spirit lives on. His records still sell, his movies are still hugely popular and his concerts are still discussed by new generations of fans. The Elvis Presley estate has selected from tens of thousands of photographs from all eras of Elvis' career to make this book, which adds up to a beautiful, desirable package that is ideal for any Elvis fan.

Gillian G. Gaar is the author of She's A Rebel: The History Of Women In Rock & Roll; Green Day: Rebels With A Cause; Nirvana: In Utero; The Rough Guide To Nirvana; and Return of the King: Elvis Presley's Great Comeback.
