Revel in this commemoration of Elvis'' life in the form of an art book told through the unique vision of legendary designer and illustrator Seymour Chwast.

Spearheading a new music form that, combined with an attitude and a look, would change the world, Elvis Presley became one of the most important cultural figures of the second half of the 20th century. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this book presents an enhanced portrait of one of America''s greatest celebrities.

With text by author Steven Brower (Satchmo: The Life and Art of Louis Armstrong), The Mighty Elvis reminds us of the continuing stardom of one of the most popular American singers of all time. Through Chwast''s illustrations, cartoons, and comics we get to relive his early life, his meteoric rise to fame and how he was affected by, and in turn, affected the world of music in the many genres he mastered.
