December 26 - JAT Publishing Updates

Some new information on the content of the new book titles from Joe Tunzi's JAT Publishing have been announced. The first book is due March 1, 2015.

The book "The Definitive Vinyl Artwork of Elvis Presley 1956-1977" will be an Elvis keepsake forever. This will be the perfect companion piece to the elaborate "Elvis Sessions IV The Recorded Music of Elvis Aron Presley 1954-1977." 

The "Vinyl Artwork" book will contain most of the original photography for the albums, singles and extended plays released in Elvis Presley's lifetime. Many of the photos will be the full gorgeous images as they were originally photographed with many never before seen in their entirety. Many of these photos are considered to be some of the greatest photography on Elvis Presley. Pictured with each image will be the original release it was used for. However, the book goes far beyond that, as it also covers the alternate artwork, letters and documents, some of the original artboards and layouts that were worked on, and details examining the photographer, date, and place where they were photographed. 

Lastly, it will also investigate the changes and corrections such as the use of reversed photographs and the use of photos that were altered on the original art. In essence, "The Definitive Vinyl Artwork of Elvis Presley 1956-1977" will not just be a photo journal, but rather a historical record on how this artwork was created. The book surely will be a work of art featuring the greatest artist of all time.

The book "From St. Paul To Fort Wayne" will be a photo journal covering Elvis' appearances in St. Paul, Minnesota in October, 1974 and his appearance in Fort Wayne, Indiana on October 25, 1976. There will be roughly 120 unpublished photos.
