Description: Elvis Presley was not only the king of rock 'n' roll, but, far beyond, the messenger and sex symbol of teenage culture. Sixty years after his first recording, Elvis brings to life the extraordinary destiny of the one who will forever remain the King. From his childhood in Tupelo and Memphis until his death, from his first records with Sun Records then at RCA until his shows in Las Vegas, from his military service in Germany to his marriage to Priscilla, every stage of life of Elvis is widely commented, embellished with striking photos, and restored in the political and cultural context of the time. Cold War, Cuban missile affair, Vietnam War, Watergate scandal, counter-culture: the life of Elvis Presley is more than twenty years of American history in upheaval. Elvis is also an enriched book. In addition to the text and illustrations, several video enhancements punctuate the King's journey. A simple application on your smartphone takes you directly to the heart of the event - images and sounds.
