October 02 - The Real Face of Elvis Presley

Due for release from Tankobon on October 21, 2022 is the 272 page Japanese hardcover book '1954-56 The Real Face of Elvis Presley' by Funabashi Shunsuke.

The book description is somewhat ambiguous: Elvis Presley is considered the most collectible artist in the world. Funabashi Shunsuke, one of the world's biggest Elvis dealer and collector, reveals the secrets why Presley is named "The King" and why he continues to have presence, even today. 

This is an Elvis book that is distinctively different from biographies, and maniacal reference books with chapters on being an Elvis maniac, a mysterious filled record collection, Elvis's private life in magazines and advertisements, Elvis's favorite clothes, the Harleys and Cadillacs:the vehicles he loved and more.
