The Libraries has quite a series of titles from across its collections featuring the King of Rock 'n' Roll. There is also an interesting link on the National Postal Museum website with the backstory of the Elvis stamp issued in 1993. Uh huh huh huh…

Highlights include:

Elvis in the post: catalogue and guide to Elvis Presley international postage stamps, by Jo Woodward, 1997.

Elvis: his life in pictures, 1997.

Elvis musical pop up, Rob Burt, 1986.

In search of Elvis : music, race, art, religion, edited by Vernon Chadwick, 1997.

Elvis + Marilyn: 2 x immortal, edited by Geri DePaoli; conceptual organization, Geri DePaoli, Wendy McDaris, 1994.

Dead Elvis: a chronicle of a cultural obsession, by Greil Marcus, 1991.

Elvis fashion: from Memphis to Vegas, Julie Mundy, in association with Graceland, 2003.

As far as the Smithsonian is concerned, Elvis is in the building . . .

    First of all congratulations on being #1. I don’t know how we found this site but it was a life saver. My daughter had to do a report on Elvis Presley and most of the sites that we went to were a little overwhelming. We came to this site and got a ton of information on Elvis. So I just wanted to say thanks and keep up the good work. I have you bookmarked.
