Elvis and fashion are a great combination, Elvis followed his own taste and style and got away with it. Some of the (jump)suits even look cool today. So can you trust Elvis to be your fashion consultant?
This book is a cardboard book with twelve one-sided cardboard pages inside; all containing colorized cutout images of our man against a flashy background.
When news of this book came out I first thought it would be a nice book on Elvis’ fashion. When the details became clear a couple of days later I got a few doubts. Now I have the book in my hands and the doubts were confirmed. The use of the term “book” is a bit overkill for this release. It contains twelve images – all from the fifties and sixties - of our man in various sets of clothing, including a pair of bathing trunks.
I expected a set of clothes and various images of our man in his underwear in need of some flashy clothes. But (unfortunately for the lady fans) Elvis comes already dressed like - a sharp dressed man - waiting to be punched out and set on a standard for display.
It is a fun book for my baby girl, but I don’t see grown-up Elvis fans “playing” with this … ehh actually I do see part of Elvis’ fan base reading this book” ? Even I played with it, one of the images ended up as a wallpaper.
You can punch out the various images and set them on your dressing cabinet for inspiration when you pick out your clothes for the day. I’ll leave the punching out to my baby girl, you can’t be too young to get in touch with some good music. And I even know which album will be playing, “Elvis sings for children and grownups too" the perfect soundtrack for this book.
